Peltz Scholarships Offered for 2019-20 MA Students

Tue 11 December 2018

We are delighted to announce that, thanks to the continued generosity of Daniel and Elizabeth Peltz, we are able to offer two MA Studentships for the 2019-20 academic year.

This will be the third year that we’ve had Peltz Scholars at The Warburg Institute, and the impact that the Scholarships have on our students is clear. As last year’s Peltz Scholar Rita Yates noted, it not only provides financial support but also "places confidence in the student to continue with their education". Rita has now graduated from the Warburg’s MA in Art History, Curatorship and Renaissance Culture and gone on to secure a prestigious internship at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge.  

"The generosity of Daniel and Elizabeth Peltz helps us to bring committed and gifted students to the Warburg. They have helped to further Rita’s career - a huge and satisfying achievement not only for Rita, but also for the Institute. We are very grateful for their support, and look forward to another year of working together."

Prof. Michelle O’Malley, Deputy Director and Director of Studies

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.
