Two Ralph Leavis Scholarships for the MSt in Music

Thanks to a generous donation in memory of Mr Ralph Leavis (Lincoln 1951), who was a daily visitor to the Music Faculty Library for much of his life, up to two scholarships are awarded for students on the MSt in Music.

In recognition of Mr Leavis’ archival and library-based interests, the awards will be made to successful applicants whose MSt work is centred on library and archival research.

The scholarship covers full fees for home students (UK, Republic of Ireland, Channel Islands & Isle of Man). Overseas students (including those from the EU) would receive a sum equivalent to the home fee as a partial fees bursary.

Candidates who would like to be considered should send an additional statement of purpose (of up to 350 words) to Ms Avalon Floyd, Academic Administrator in the Faculty of Music ( by Friday, 7 January.
The Faculty’s Graduate Admissions Panel will oversee the selection of the successful candidates.

Please note that this is one of the few funding schemes, for which a separate application is necessary. Unless stated otherwise on the University’s admissions pages, all candidates are automatically considered for any funding they are eligible for. This includes the Black Academic Future doctoral scholarships.
