If you are a student of literature or creative writing, here’s your chance to study in a summer school in Scotland.
The British Council Scotland Commonwealth Scholarships, supported by British Council Scotland and Scottish Universities’ International Summer School (SUISS) to celebrate the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Scotland, are open to interested candidates.
The scholarships are intended to support gifted literature and creative writing students from Commonwealth countries who would otherwise be unable to attend the summer school. Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of academic merit and financial need.
Two 14-day literature scholarships and one four-week creative writing scholarship will be awarded. This will cover the summer school’s course and accommodation fees, which includes the cost of all tuition, accommodation, most meals, a social and cultural programme and full use of the facilities of Edinburgh University’s library. Candidates must note that the scholarship does not cover travel expenses or other daily expenses.
Applications for this scholarship are now invited from undergraduate or postgraduate students in British and/or Irish literature and creative writing. The application deadline is March 21, 2014.
Applicants should indicate if they would like to be considered for the British Council Scotland Commonwealth Scholarship.
