Postgraduate students sustain the intellectual life of any university: they are our future research scientists, lecturers and leading thinkers in the humanities, arts and social sciences.
That is why at Lincoln we take steps to nurture our postgraduate student community, providing close academic support, and dedicated training and facilities through our Graduate School.
The University of Lincoln Court Postgraduate Bursary will be a one off payment of £3,000 to an exceptional student embarking on a postgraduate taught course within any discipline this academic year (2015/2016).
Students who have applied to enroll on a postgraduate taught course in September 2015 are invited to submit an application for the bursary, outlining why the Court should support them on the basis of need and/or academic achievement.
Introduction to the University Court
University courts are an ancient tradition and at Lincoln, influential persons representing all aspects of industry, commerce, the arts, science, the professions, education and the voluntary sector, locally, regionally and nationally will advise those responsible for setting the University’s strategic direction and development.
The University is grateful for the gifts received to date from University Court members for the Postgraduate Fund and proposes to recognise excellence in postgraduate study by awarding a University of Lincoln Court Postgraduate Bursary.
