Sarah Barrow Bursary in French Studies

This bursary is named after Sarah Ann Barrow, who endowed the James Barrow Chair of French at the University of Liverpool in memory of her husband. The chair was established in 1905 and was among the first endowed positions in French in English Higher Education.

Applications are invited for the Sarah Barrow Bursary in French Studies, to begin in the forthcoming academic year.

Amount

The Bursary of £6,000 is intended to provide full fees at the Home student rate (approx. £4,600), plus a payment of the remainder to contribute towards maintenance costs. 

Open to

Applicants to the one-year MRes in Modern Languages and Cultures (French studies pathway) are eligible to apply for the full bursary; applicants to the two-year part-time MRes are eligible to apply for the same amount, but spread over two years. All applicants should be eligible for the UK (Home) fee status.

How to apply

Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of demonstrated academic excellence, with preference given to candidates who otherwise would not be able to finance an MRes. Applicants are required to make contact with a potential supervisor for assistance in formulating a research proposal.

Applicants for Sarah Barrow Bursary must also make a formal application for admittance to the MRes in Modern Languages and Cultures (French studies pathway) at the University of Liverpool by that same date.
