How to Apply

Applicants are generally shortlisted by the scholarship panel using one or more of the following criteria:

  • the strength of your RCA application
  • financial need
  • talent
  • academic promise
  • your portfolio.

As our scholarships are extremely competitive and limited in number, selection is usually by invitation only. Unless otherwise stated, shortlists are usually drawn up using academic feedback from programme applications, with only the very best applicants being contacted. Shortlisted students will be contacted by the scholarships team via email and invited to apply, which often involves submitting a CV, personal statement and a financial impact questionnaire. If you have not been invited to apply before your offer-acceptance deadline, please presume you were not successful. Shortlisting varies depending on the scheme but usually takes place in early spring. As opportunities are limited, students are asked to make their preparations on the assumption that they will need to pay for the Programme privately via alternative means. 

If successful, the scholarship recipient must meet the terms and conditions of the award in order to continue to receive the scholarship for the duration of study.
