PhilSoc offers a limited number of annual bursaries for students embarking on a taught postgraduate programme in the areas of linguistics or philology (MA, MSt, MPhil). The bursaries are intended to make a contribution to maintaining and furthering the breadth and diversity of language-study in the UK by providing support for outstanding scholars in the field. One bursary, called the Anna Morpurgo Davies Masters Bursary is normally awarded for studies on ancient languages (including non-Indo-European ones). Each bursary is valued at £5000 for one year only, which may be used for either fees or maintenance. A bursary will not be awarded to anyone who has full fees and maintenance from any other award but it may be used to supplement another award which covers only fees. Applications for 2021 awards will be announced on this website.
PhilSoc offers funding for (1) Masters Bursaries; (2) Travel and Fieldwork Bursaries for PhD students; (3) unaffiliated members via Martin Burr awards. and (4) Public Events and Outreach. The scope of each and application procedures are described below.
