Travel Scholarships


 

TRAVEL SCHOLARSHIPS

Students already enrolled at Queen’s are entitled to apply for various awards for travel related to their research.  Typical events for which you can apply include:

  • Presenting a conference paper
  • Attending a conference closely related to your area of research
  • Travel to libraries or archives for research purposes
  • Attending a premiere of one of your compositions
  • Attending a composition workshop

In all cases, applicants are advised that well-costed and specific applications tend to meet with more success than vague or general requests for funds.

This scholarship was founded in 1950 by Hugh Turtle, Esq., LLD. The Scholarship is tenable by the following graduates of the Queen's University of Belfast: (a) Bachelors of Music, (b) Bachelors of Arts who have taken Music as one of the subjects of their final examination and (c) Bachelors of Science (Music Technology).

The scholarship will normally be of the value of up to £1,000 per annum. If the income from the fund permits, more than one scholarship may be awarded in any one year, and additional grants may be made if the Academic Council is satisfied that the acceptance of the scholarship has involved the holder in exceptional expense.

The scholarship will be awarded by the Academic Council on the recommendation of the Head of the School of Creative Arts.
