The Bartlett Promise represents a long-term commitment to attract and support students from a broader range of backgrounds to study at The Bartlett, in order to tackle the lack of diversity in the built environment sector. The scholarships cover fees, living and study costs for scholars, as well as professional and personal support and careers advice for the duration of their programme. Now, in its second year, the scheme currently supports 21 UK undergraduates, 13 Master’s and 4 PhD students with help from our valued donors Jestico + Whiles, Derwent London and the Aziz Foundation.
Having established a unique UK focused scholarship which will grow with each successive year, The Bartlett are now extending their efforts internationally. Four scholarships will be open to students from Sub-Saharan Africa to join The Bartlett from September 2022, with applications opening from 1 March 2022. The scholarships are open to nationals of 48 Sub-Saharan African countries who have an offer of a place on a Master’s programme in any of The Bartlett’s nine schools, and are in financial need.Table of Content
