Welcoming the bursaries, President and Vice-Chancellor of Queen’s University Belfast, Professor Ian Greer said: “The allocation of funding to create 50 new Master’s bursaries here at Queen’s will have a hugely positive impact on students eligible for the scheme.  

"We are very proud of our Graduate School and the opportunities it offers postgraduate students worldwide to get a first class education at Queen’s.  We want to support the contribution of our students to our community and this funding is a proactive way of investing in their skills and the progress of the Northern Ireland economy.”

The bursaries are open to graduates who achieve a 2:1 or more. Full eligibility criteria will be available on the Queen’s website in due course for students wanting to apply for the grants for the 2021-22 academic year.
