Thursday, 23 April 2015

Central is delighted to announce that it will be offering a range of Embassy Postgraduate Scholarships for students beginning their MA/MFA Studies in the 2015/16 academic year.

These awards will allow new MA and MFA Central students to access financial support and which will support them during their studies.

The combined awards add up to a total of £150,000 in available support ranging across both Open Awards and Postgraduate Support Scheme Awards.  Open Awards will range in value between £2,000 and £5,000 each, and Post Graduate Support Scheme Awards will be allocated in the amount of £10,000 each. 

Students interested in applying for an Embassy Postgraduate Scholarship must be holding an offer to begin their studies by the deadline of 29 May 2015.  All students holding offers by this date will be invited to apply for the Embassy Postgraduate Scholarships and will be sent an application form together with guidance notes.

Criteria for the awards are based on a combination of merit (promise/ability shown in application form and at audition/interview) and hardship. 

Students will indicate on their scholarship application form which of the awards they are eligible and wish to be considered for. Some will be eligible for both. Students will have to demonstrate how they are eligible for the PSS award (send in evidence of £9,000 fees, etc.).

Applicants will have two weeks to return their Embassy scholarship application form. Central’s scholarship panel will consider all eligible applications. All applicants, successful and unsuccessful, will be notified of the outcome of their scholarship application.

For full information about eligibility criteria for these awards, please contact Central’s admissions office at admissions@cssd.ac.uk.
