The Sanctuary Scholarship will support one postgraduate taught master’s student each academic year. The Scholarship offers one award for entry to an eligible postgraduate taught master’s programme starting in September 2021, and includes:

  • A full tuition fee bursary, to cover the cost of postgraduate taught master’s course fees.
