the Courtauld scholarship fund
Support the most talented postgraduate students at The Courtauld today and shape the visual arts of tomorrow.
“Receiving this scholarship has motivated me to excel in my degree and enabled me to concentrate more on the coursework without having to worry about finances. I thank you for your confidence and willingness to help me achieve my goals, and for allowing me the opportunity to attend such a fine institution. I do hope that one day I will be able to make as significant difference to someone’s life, as you have to mine.”
Natalia Sielewicz, 2009 graduate, MA History of Art
Supporting the visual arts leaders and conservators of the future
The Courtauld Scholarship Fund was set up to encourage the study of art history and conservation at the highest level through the provision of funding for the most talented and dedicated students. Support through scholarships can transform the life of a budding art historian, conservator or curator, both enabling them to take the big step to pursue their studies as well as remove financial worries during their course.
For talented young art historians and conservators who come to study at The Courtauld from all over the globe, our unique depth, breadth and quality of education opens up opportunities for personal, intellectual and professional growth. You can help them to become world-class curators, conservators, art historians, journalists and teachers and follow in the steps of our many alumni such as Directors of The British Museum (Neil MacGregor), The Metropolitan Museum of Art (Dr Thomas P. Campbell) and Tate (Sir Nicholas Serota).
Our target – to support over 100 students
Our goal is to provide support for over 100 post graduates a year (over half the post graduate cohort) with a fund of £800,000 a year.
What the Fund will provide
The Fund will provide:
- A minimum scholarship of £5,000 per annum
- Full scholarships, covering tuition fees and maintenance
- 3-year scholarships for students in 3-year PhD and Conservation courses
