The Courtauld Scholarship Fund
How you can help
“A scholarship at The Courtauld is a special gift; the combination of an exceptional art collection, conservation programmes and the study of art history under one roof, stands as something truly unique".
Veronica Bulgari (MA 1990) scholarship supporter
The Courtauld Scholarship Fund
The Courtauld Scholarship Fund offers our supporters an opportunity to participate at one of three Patron levels and for a duration of their choice:
OPTION 1 - Set up Your Named Scholarship
For a gift of £5,000+pa we are pleased to offer the opportunity to name the scholarship for the period of your support, which could be in your name, the name of an organisation or of a person who inspired you.
Suggested minimum annual gift levels:
Student Patron: £5,000+ pa
Class Patron: £15,000+pa
College Patron: £25,000+pa
Please consider a multi-year pledge
The Courtauld warmly welcomes single donations for one year of study, which can give support to an MA student through his/her one-year course. However, PhD and conservation courses require three years of study. Supporting students for the full three years of their course provides stability and peace of mind for the student.
Suggested duration of support: three years (renewable)
OPTION 2 - Make a Gift of £100pa (or more)
We also welcome gifts of £100pa or more (as a single annual gift or spread over the year through direct debit) as a contribution to The Courtauld Scholarship Fund. The more donations that are received, the larger the fund, and the more students you and other contributors can support.

“ I’m very grateful that I was able to make a donation, and hope that others will have the opportunity to give to support the arts. If we all give a little, together, we can make a big difference, especially during this difficult economic climate when so much arts funding is being withdrawn.”
Jessica Devoy, (BA 2007) Scholarship Supporter
OpTION 3 – Endowed Scholarships
For gifts of over £125,000 scholarships can be endowed and named in perpetuity. Most recently, friends, colleagues and supporters joined together to create The Nicholas and Jane Ferguson Scholarship Fund, an endowed scholarship named after the former Chairman of The Courtauld Institute of Art.

The impact of your donation
Your gift will
- Ensure the continuity of The Courtauld’s role as a world centre of scholarship in art history and conservation;
- Ensure the most promising students train as much-needed curators, art historians and conservators, who will ultimately go on to interpret and preserve collections for future generations, regardless of their ability to pay for their education;
- Allow students to take full advantage of The Courtauld’s resources without the distraction of ‘making ends meet’;
- Enable PhD and conservation students to make long-term commitments to three-year postgraduate studies
