Manchester Writing School Joyce Nield Scholarship
The Manchester Writing School at Manchester Metropolitan University is pleased to welcome applications for the 2016/2017 Joyce Nield Scholarship for students joining the programme in September 2016. 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 (a list is available here: http://thecommonwealth.org/member-countries);
- Submit an application to the MA Creative Writing programme before 31st August 2016;
- 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 2016 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. 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.
