Funding for MPhil Textile Conservation

Funding for MPhil Textile Conservation

The selection process for the MPhil Textile Conservation programme begins some time before the start of the academic year, to allow students time to raise funds for their study.

All successful applicants to the programme are encouraged to research funding opportunities and to apply for funding  – advice will be available (contact Frances.Lennard@glasgow.ac.uk). 

In addition there is some bursary funding available through the Textile Conservation Centre Foundation – all successful applicants will be sent an application form.  There are some other sources of funding, such as the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), and smaller trusts and grant-giving bodies in the UK, as well as some overseas sources.

Potential applicants could begin to investigate local sources of funding but you should not make contact with funding bodies before you have been offered and accepted a place on the programme.
