American alumni scholarship

This scholarship was established from a fundraising initiative of Convocation with the American alumni. It is awarded on the grounds of academic excellence, financial need and ambassadorial potential. The scholarship will be held in conjunction with one year taught postgraduate programme in any field of study.

One award is available for the 2016/17 academic year; its value will be a half fees award for a one year course (up to a maximum of US$11,800). Each candidate must also demonstrate the ability to fund the balance of the costs involved in undertaking such a course of study in Bristol, including living expenses.


Any student who has been accepted for such a programme by the University of Bristol on or before the closing date of this scheme and who is normally domiciled in America and resident in the USA at the time of application.

Priority will be given to students who have not previously studied in the UK.


Applications for 2017/18 academic year are now closed.
