Leeds Masters Scholarships

Leeds Masters Scholarships, worth £5,000, aim to encourage eligible UK fee-paying students from under-represented groups to study a Masters qualification. 

For successful applicants, the Leeds Masters Scholarship can be awarded as a fee waiver or as monthly payments direct to you. These scholarships are funded by the generous donations of our alumni through the University of Leeds Footsteps Fund.

Applications for Leeds Masters Scholarships for the 2023–24 academic year will open in Spring 2023. Sign up to our newsletter for updates

Additional benefits

By applying for a Leeds Masters Scholarship, you’ll also be considered for the University’s Plus Programme. This tailored support service provides many free and bespoke activities during the year, including pastoral support, extra funding opportunities and more.

If your Leeds Masters Scholarship application is successful, you’ll automatically be registered on the Plus Programme. If it’s unsuccessful, you may still be able to benefit from access to the University's Plus Programme throughout your studies.

I saw the MA Advertising and Design I knew it was the one, but I couldn’t afford the course fees and accommodation. A Leeds Masters Scholarship made this possible and I was able to continue my university studies.
