The Mike Davies Innovation Scholarship

The University is the recipient of a generous donation to support students studying Glass or Ceramics. The purpose of the scholarship is to allow students to undertake a project or opportunity that will lead to innovative uses of glass and ceramic materials for creative use. The project will support modular content within the course of study.
Examples of this could include projects within the university, internships, classes and workshops in the UK or abroad or study visits.

Two £1,000 scholarships per academic year are available to students studying:

  • BA Glass and Ceramics (Stage 2 and 3)
  • MA Glass
  • MA Ceramics
  • PhD Glass and Ceramics

This scholarship is closed for the 2016/17 academic year. This will reopen in February 2018.

For further information or for an informal discussion please contact Professor Kevin Petrie, Head of Visual Arts.

Projects should be completed within 6 months and successful candidates will be expected to produce an illustrated report on their project and supply images for publicity purposes.
