Change Studentship for a BAME student (MA Curating Collections and Heritage, University of Brighton))

The Change Studentship will be awarded to a black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) Curating Collections and Heritage MA applicant.

It is one award for 2019 covering postgraduate course fees (£6,426 GBP) and travel expenses to access a mentoring programme organised by the university. The studentship is open to those already working in the museums and heritage sector, as well as to new entrants, and applicants can study full time or part time.

The award has been developed to help promote diversity in museums. Recent research has shown that less than 5% of the UK’s museum and heritage curators are black, Asian or minority ethnic. This award is intended to help a wider range of people consider or continue a career in the sector and support museums and heritage organisations to become more representative of our society.
