If you wish to live in Goldsmiths accommodation you must make a separate application. Find out more about our accommodation and how to apply. Please include in the notes section that you are applying for the Humanitarian Scholarship.
Successful applicants will be selected on a competitive basis.
Initial shortlisting by eligibility criteria will be completed by our Scholarships Co-ordinator. All applicants who meet the eligibility criteria are then forwarded to the next selection stage.
Applications will then be considered by an awarding panel. All panel members understand that applicants will have a broad range of differing skills, attributes and experiences, so they will give equal consideration to both the applicant’s academic record and their answers to the questions posed in the award application form. Panel members also understand that what is important is the content of the answers and their relevance to the questions, not the standard of writing.
The panel will consist of representatives from Admissions, an academic department, and the Students’ Union (or associated student representative eg President of the Palestine Society). The panel will assess the applications against the stated criteria.
Final award recipients and reserve candidates will be decided by the panel.
