Joyce Nield Scholarship

The Manchester Writing School at Manchester Metropolitan University is pleased to welcome applications for the 2017/2018 Joyce Nield Scholarship for students joining the programme in September 2017 or January 2018. The scholarship will assist a student from a non-UK Commonwealth country with the cost of an MA in Creative Writing.

The scholarship will be awarded to an applicant of outstanding potential and commitment, and will pay 50% of the tuition fees for the MA, whether for full- or part-time study, on campus or online.

To be considered for the scholarship, you should:

  • Be a citizen of a non-UK Commonwealth country;
  • Submit an application to the MA Creative Writing programme before 31st August 2017;
  • Indicate at the top of your personal statement therein that you would like to be considered for the scholarship; (if you have already submitted an application and/or been offered a place for September 2017 or January 2018 entry, you can just let us know by email that you would like to be considered);
  • Through your application to the MA demonstrate your eligibility, excellence, commitment, and potential.

The successful applicant will be expected to act as a “Masters Scholar” and make a modest, but important, contribution to the learning community of the Manchester Writing School – whether on campus here in Manchester or on an international basis through distance learning platforms. Examples of this might include: arranging a seminar, workshop or small project; representing the university at an event or festival; undertaking a pilot project or placement with one of our partner organisations; encouraging the wider university community (including undergraduate students) to engage with Manchester Writing School activities.
