Carnegie-Cameron Taught Postgraduate Bursaries
The Carnegie Trust for the Universities of Scotland funds bursaries available to students on taught postgraduate courses at Robert Gordon University.
The University has received funding for 2013 for seven awards from the The Carnegie Trust for the Universities of Scotland.
Under the conditions of the trust, these awards will be offered to Scottish students undertaking either a one year full-time or two year part-time taught postgraduate degree in any subject offered by the University commencing in the 2013/2014 academic session.
Each award is worth up to £3,750 and will be deducted from the tuition fees due.
Applicants must be Scottish by birth, descent (at least one parent born in Scotland) or have been continuously resident in Scotland for a period of at least three years for the purpose of secondary or tertiary education in Scotland.
A Bursary can be awarded only to a student on a one-year taught post-graduate degree course at the University. It is permissible that the ‘one-year' course be taken on a half-time basis over two consecutive years.
Applicants must already hold an unconditional offer of a place to study on a taught postgraduate course at the Robert Gordon University commencing in September 2013. Applicants who do not hold an offer of admission by the deadline will not be considered for the award.
Bursaries will be awarded on the basis of an overall assessment of the merit and promise of the candidate, including their financial circumstances.
While the most promising candidates will normally have a first-class honours degree or equivalent, this is not essential. The ultimate criteria for the award of a Bursary should be those envisaged by Andrew Carnegie - that the candidate be qualified and deserving, industrious and ambitious and that the candidate would derive particular benefit from a one-year, taught, postgraduate degree which he or she would be unlikely to enjoy without the award.
Completed applications must be received by the 23 August 2013.
Applications will be reviewed by a selecting panel at the University and their decisions notified to candidates in September 2013.
