Wiley Scholarship 2016

Wiley Scholarship 2016

Wiley is offering a fee-waiver bursary of £1,000 to a full-time or part-time student at the Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies on the MA in Publishing or MA in Digital Publishing. The student will also receive the guarantee of a work placement for a minimum of three weeks at Wiley in Oxford.

The Publishing Scholarship, open to students from the UK and EU, will be awarded on the basis of a considered explanation of what the master’s course will contribute to the student’s learning and career development.

Applicants must already have accepted, by the time of application, a conditional or unconditional offer of a place to start the course in September 2016.  Applicants for the Scholarship must submit by email a cv and a 500-word rationale for their application for the Scholarship.  Applicants are also asked to detail any further funding sources they are applying for, and to indicate how they intend to pay for the remainder of their fees and maintenance costs. The application must be made on the appropriate application form available by 3 June 2016.  Applicants will be informed by email of the Faculty Scholarship Committee’s decision by 1 July 2016.

Students may apply for this scholarship alongside other sources of funding (including other scholarships offered through Oxford Brookes University), but these must be detailed on the application.  The Scholarship will not include a maintenance grant.  Applicants who are successful in receiving awards from other sources of funding which cover their tuition fees will not be eligible for the Scholarship, and must inform the Programme Administrator.  Eligibility will not be affected by funding covering maintenance costs. 

The Scholarship cannot be transferred to maintenance costs.
