More information

Historic Royal Palaces (HRP) wishes to make careers in the heritage sector more accessible to people from UK-resident Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities to help ensure everyone feels the palaces are for them and make them accessible and relevant for all.

In order to achieve this, HRP is pleased to support two scholarships for students from BAME groups to study part-time on the new MA in Heritage Management, jointly established with Queen Mary University of London, during the 2020/21 and 2021/22 academic years.

The scholarships will cover your part-time course fees and a living allowance of £12,273 per annum.

For the duration of the MA, and alongside the course, those holding the scholarships will work part-time within the Curators' team at Historic Royal Palaces for an additional two days a week. 

The deadline for applications will be Friday 3 July. 


If you would like to be considered for one of these scholarships, please state your intention to apply on the MA application form. The part-time application form can be found via the MA Heritage Management course page.
