About the Scholarship Sponsor:

York University was established in 1963 after receiving permission to open from the University Grants Commission in 1960. As chancellor, Lord James oversaw the university’s first day of classes on October 9, 1963, when it opened its doors to 230 freshmen. When it first started, the institution only had 28 faculty and staff members across six departments (economics, English, education, history, politics, and mathematics). Currently, the university is home to nine colleges in addition to approximately thirty research centers and departments. The university’s status as a recognized educational institution has been confirmed by the Privy Council.

The Heslington campus of the University of York has been growing and changing ever since it first opened. The campus is filled with monuments, sculptures, and academic buildings. The former King’s Manor is now home to the Department of Archaeology, the Centre for Medieval Studies, and the Centre for Eighteenth-Century Studies. Concerts, competitions, conferences, graduations, fashion shows, and other events are regularly held at Central Hall, a tiered auditorium in the center of campus. The institution maintains an extensive library and archive system, which includes numerous locations both on campus and in the surrounding community. The JB Morrell Library is the primary resource center on campus. You can also find Heslington Hall on campus.
