Peltz Scholarships Offered for 2018/19 MA Students

Wed 13 June 2018

We are delighted to announce that thanks to a generous donation from Daniel and Elizabeth Peltz we are able to offer two new MA Studentships for the 2018/19 academic year. Being able to offer scholarships like this to students studying at the Warburg Institute not only provides financial support but as last year’s Peltz Scholar who is studying on the MA in Art History, Curatorship and Renaissance Culture course noted, ‘it places confidence in the student to continue with their education. Without the generosity of foundations or donors, some educational opportunities for many, as they were for me, are very difficult to obtain’. 

The Peltz Scholarships will cover the fees for one-year full-time MA study, and are open to students who have applied to study on either of the Warburg Institute’s MA Programmes and who are self-funded and domiciled in the UK or European Union (EU). The primary criterion on which applications are judged is academic merit. The successful applicant will be of exceptional quality, evidenced by previous academic achievement at undergraduate level, with an outstanding mark achieved in the final-year project/dissertation and have a demonstrable interest in undertaking a master’s degree at the Warburg Institute.

'With the pressures on students as fees increase, and on institutions as budgets shrink, philanthropic support is more important than ever. The generosity of Daniel and Elizabeth Peltz is exemplary and has helped us here at the Warburg to bring the best students to benefit from our excellent academic programmes.'

- Prof Bill Sherman, Director

The Deadline for applications is 13 July 2018
