Leeds Masters Scholarship

The Leeds Masters Scholarships aim to encourage students from under-represented groups to embark on a postgraduate qualification. The Scholarships are funded by the generous donations from our alumni through the University of Leeds Footsteps Fund and are for UK students paying postgraduate tuition fees at the UK rate. 

The School of Performance and Cultural Industries at the University of Leeds is committed to increasing the representation of, and opportunities for, UK Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic students who wish to pursue Masters level study in the Arts. As part of the Leeds Masters Scholarships portfolio, the School has ring-fenced four awards, to which Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic applicants will receive priority access. These awards have been ring-fenced due to an historic under-representation within the School and more widely across the sector, and a commitment to change. To be considered for one of these awards, you must meet the financial eligibility criteria for the Leeds Masters Scholarships, be planning to study within the School of Performance and Cultural Industries, and be from a UK Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic background.
