Scholarship: The Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain (SAHGB) MA Scholarship 2022/23 (Deadline: 15 JULY 2022)

We are thrilled to launch the second round of the Masters’ Bursary scheme, supported by the generous bequest of the Arnold Hayward Stevenson Educational Trust Fund.

There are significant, often structural, barriers to postgraduate study, in particular in disciplines like architectural history. We need to do more to diversify our discipline and those who practice it. As part of the Society’s commitment to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion we very strongly encourage underrepresented communities to imagine their futures in architectural history and to apply for this bursary. Recognising that partial support often excludes those from non-traditional backgrounds for postgraduate study in the humanities, we are offering a £20,000 bursary to one candidate.

We hope this bursary will be transformational for the successful candidate, opening up the possibility of further study and career development in architectural history in higher education, heritage practice and/or museums and collections.

Further Particulars:

  • The bursary is for a sum of £20,000, to include fees and maintenance (1 year full-time or 2 years’ part-time study)
  • Candidates, who have already been accepted to a post-graduate taught or 1 year post-graduate research Masters in Architectural History or related disciplines, are eligible to apply. 
  • The Society will not support candidates on MArch courses
  • Funds will be issued to the candidate directly, not via their university
  • Funds will be paid in two instalments over the academic year, subject to successful progress through the course
  • There is an expectation that the recipient of the award will work closely with our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, and Early Career Research networks, and take part in organising the SAHGB’s yearly PhD / ECR Symposium.
  • Eligible candidates may self-nominate for this Scholarship by filling in the fields at the base of this page.

If you’d like to join our network, please email We are grateful to the trustees of the Arnold Stevenson estate for the generous bequest which has made this award possible.

The closing date for applications will be: 15 JULY 2022
