2022/2023 Bartlett Promise Scholarship: Applicants must be nationals of a Bartlett approved list of Sub-Saharan African countries who are studying a Bartlett master’s program. Read the whole eligibility criteria, selection procedure, and frequently asked questions.

To address the lack of diversity in the built environment sector, The Bartlett Promise signifies a long-term commitment to attract and support students from a greater range of backgrounds to study at The Bartlett. For the course of their program, the scholarships cover tuition, living expenses, and study costs, as well as professional and personal assistance and career counseling.

With the help of our esteemed donors Jestico + Whiles, Derwent London, and the Aziz Foundation, the scheme now supports 21 UK undergraduates, 13 Master’s, and 4 PhD students in their second year.

The Bartlett has built a one-of-a-kind UK-focused scholarship that will continue to grow with each passing year, and they are now expanding their efforts abroad. Four scholarships for students from Sub-Saharan Africa will be available to start at The Bartlett in September 2022, with applications beginning on March 1, 2022. The scholarships are available to nationals of 48 Sub-Saharan African nations who have been offered a place to study in the United States.
