Hamish Ogston Foundation Commonwealth MA Scholarships
For The Prince’s Foundation School of Traditional Arts, September 2022.
Deadline for applications: Friday 10th June 2022.
As part of The Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Commonwealth Heritage Skills Training Programme, the Commonwealth Heritage Forum is thrilled to launch this scholarship scheme. With funding from the Hamish Ogston Foundation two full MA scholarships will be awarded to students from Commonwealth countries to undertake the MA in Traditional Arts at The Prince’s Foundation School of Traditional Arts in the United Kingdom, beginning in September 2022.
The MA in Traditional Arts course is a full-time, two-year course in London at The Prince’s Foundation School of Traditional Arts. Students acquire skills, techniques and critical understanding in a range of traditional arts and crafts alongside associated philosophies—allowing them to advance their existing skills. More information about the course, including its structure and attendance requirements, can be found online here.
The Hamish Ogston Foundation Commonwealth MA Scholarships will be transformational for the successful candidates— opening up opportunities for a successful career in the heritage and conservation sectors. We are looking for students who want to specialise in specific heritage crafts relevant to their own country, but who also have a wide interest in heritage, building crafts and architectural conservation. For example, there will be opportunities in summer 2023 (between years 1 and 2) for students to participate in live training projects with the Commonwealth Heritage Forum.
In particular, it is crucial that scholarship recipients have a desire to develop their skills to improve the historic built environment for this, and future, generations.
