PAIS Departmental Scholarship

The Award

PAIS is delighted to confirm that eight scholarships are available for students commencing MA study in Autumn 2020. The award will automatically be deducted from the winners' tuition fees.

The awards will be allocated as follows:

  • Four x £5,000 awards for Home or EU candidates.
  • Four x £10,000 awards for Overseas candidates.
  • Part-time candidates will be considered; successful part-time awards will be distributed evenly across both years of study (eg, £2,500 in each year for a Home candidate).

Eligibility & Deadlines

  • Open to applicants on all PAIS taught MA programmes, including the Double Degrees (Warwick year only).
  • Candidates must apply to the university and have paid their application fee no later no later than 23 April 2020. You must submit your application to the MA programme before submitting your scholarship application.
  • Candidates must apply for the scholarship no later than 23 April 2020.
  • All supporting documentation for the university application, including your reference, must be received no later than 30 April 2020.
  • Successful candidates must obtain an offer from the university before taking up the award.
  • Candidates may apply concurrently to other funding sources; however, successful candidates who receive major tuition funding elsewhere will be disqualified.

Selection Criteria

Each application will be judged on the following merits:

  • Outstanding academic performance (70%)
  • Outstanding case for support (30%)

Please note that this is not a needs-based scholarship, so your financial situation will not be taken into account.

Application Guidelines

The primary factor determining an application's success is the strength of the case for support. This case for support should demonstrate why you fit the above criteria as well as reflect your motivations for choosing to do a postgraduate degree in your specialisation. Your case for support should be no more than 600 words in length, and should differ from the statement of purpose submitted with your application to the university.

The application form can be downloaded here. This should be completed and submitted via email to Judith McAllister no later than 23 April 2020.

We aim to make a decision on applications within six weeks of the closing date. If you have not received the results of your application within seven weeks of the closing date, you may assume your application was not successful.
