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, co-funded by Exeter College and Jesus College, respectively.

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.

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.

Candidates who would like to be considered should send an additional statement of purpose (of up to 350 words) to Ms Jade Murphy, Academic Administrator in the Faculty of Music by Friday, 22 January 2021. The Faculty’s Graduate Admissions Panel will oversee the selection of the successful candidates.
