The Aziz Foundation is pleased to announce that it is offering three Master’s scholarships for the 2020/21 academic year at The Bartlett, UCL.

Working in partnership with The Bartlett Promise, the Aziz Foundation is excited to offer scholarships to three exceptional students who are looking to pursue postgraduate study at The Bartlett Institute, UCL.

The Bartlett is the UK’s largest multidisciplinary faculty of the built environment, part of one of the world’s top universities. Its vision is of a world where everything that’s built aims to add to the well-being of people and the environment.

In 2019, The Bartlett set up The Bartlett Promise Scholarship to enable students from backgrounds underrepresented in the faculty to pursue their studies. As partners, we are proud to be working with The Bartlett in diversifying the student profile of UCL and transforming the built environment sector.

These scholarships provide the perfect opportunity for exceptional students who are active in British Muslim communities and passionate about creating change. Prospective applicants will have the commitment and ability to support and represent Muslim communities in wider society, as well as the credibility to translate new learnings for a community context. They will also be driven to create mutual understanding between communities and contribute to the creation of a more cohesive society.

The scholarship will fully cover tuition fees and offers a living stipend of £15,364. Applicants may apply to any eligible master’s programme offered by The Bartlett’s schools. Please see here for more information on the list of eligible courses.
