Postgraduate funding

The School of History is pleased to be able to offer a number of scholarships which contribute to the fees or maintenance for postgraduate study.

The School of History is a member of the AHRC-funded Scottish Graduate School for Arts & Humanities and the ESRC-funded Scottish Graduate School of Social Science. Students holding an offer from St Andrews are eligible to apply for studentships administered by either Scottish Graduate School, and the MSc in Economic and Social History is accredited by the ESRC for 1+3 funding.

Students wishing to be considered for funding should note in particular the importance of submitting an application for a place to study well in advance of any funding deadline (further scheme-specific information is available under the drop-down menus and links below).
