Applications are now open for Glasgow City Heritage Trust’s new bursary scheme for postgraduate students in relevant taught Masters programmes, who are undertaking dissertation research that focuses on any aspect of Glasgow’s historic built environment. The purpose of the bursaries is to engage with, and support, student research into the city’s built heritage.

There are four bursaries available, each for £750. The bursaries are awarded on a competitive basis. To be eligible students must be enrolled in a taught Master’s programme through an accredited university based in the UK and planning to complete their dissertation by the 1st September 2023.

Successful applicants will be asked to fill in an evaluation report within two months of completing their dissertation, detailing the process and findings of their dissertation and how the bursary helped with their research.
