Durham University


Vice-Chancellor's Scholarships for the Arts

The University welcomes scholarship applications from all areas of the arts. We are confident that we can offer some support to all aspects of the arts; creative writing, for example, is currently undergoing something of a renaissance at Durham, both at staff and student levels. However, our present structure is particularly suited to both theatre and musical theatre. Durham student groups, both university-wide and college-based, have a long tradition of staging and writing high quality dramas of all kinds. Successful scholarship candidates to date have tended (by no means exclusively) to excel in theatre and musical theatre, but we also strongly encourage applications from those with previous experience in related areas such as theatrical scriptwriting, directing and stage-management.

“The Vice Chancellor's Scholarship funding has proved invaluable to me in terms of accessing the arts here at Durham University. I was able to use some of the money to invest in a pair of character shoes, which were vital for my dance numbers in "Chicago!".”

Lydia Feerick, BA Philosophy & Psychology
