The University of Bristol is delighted to call for applications for the University of Bristol Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarship for UK and International Students, 2018
University of Bristol is offering vice-chancellor’s scholarship for undergraduate students with exceptional musical, dramatic or sporting talent. Up to 20 awards are normally available each year, valued at £1,500 per year in sport and £3000 in music and drama. These scholarships will be awarded in the first instance for a period of one year. The closing date for the 2016/17 intake is the 15th January 2017.
The Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarship scheme is open to undergraduate students with exceptional musical, dramatic or sporting talent. The scheme is open to students applying to any undergraduate course at the University (although, as the scheme is designed to attract students with exceptional abilities outside their normal field of study, a Music student would not be eligible for a music scholarship nor a Drama student for a drama scholarship). Historically, scholarships in Music and Drama have been valued at £3,000. Scholarships in Sport have been valued at £1,500. No more than 20 scholarships are usually awarded within an academic year. This will be confirmed in due course.
Scholarships are available to pursue undergraduate program at the University of Bristol.
Scholarships are awarded to study any undergraduate course available at the University of Bristol.
University of Bristol, UK
Scholarship can be taken at:
Students applying for a single or joint honours Music degree will not be eligible for a Music scholarship and students applying for a single or joint honours Drama degree will not be eligible for a Drama scholarship. Applicants must be able to demonstrate outstanding artistic, creative or sporting potential. Awards will be made on a competitive basis but applicants will normally be expected to satisfy the following minimum criteria:
-Music/vocal awards: A minimum of Grade VIII in examinations offered by the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (or equivalent). Those students short listed for a scholarship will be required to attend an audition in Bristol at the end of February or beginning of March 2016. Full details will be sent to short listed students during the first two weeks in February. Any students invited to audition, who are not able to attend on the advertised date, will not be considered for a scholarship. Travel Bursaries to attend the audition are available for home (UK) students from lower income families (normally those with household incomes of £42,620 or less).
-Drama awards: Evidence of sustained extra-curricular engagement with theatre and/or filmmaking, along with distinguished achievement in relevant school subjects (eg theatre studies, film studies or other arts/humanities subjects).
-Sporting awards: Successful applicants will have had considerable success at representative level. It would be unusual for an award to be given to a student who had not had International honours, at least at Junior level. Although a student might apply for other scholarships, such as the government funded Talented Athlete Sports Scheme awards, the holder of a Vice-Chancellor’s award must not hold other funded sporting grants.
