These awards were established by the Guild of Graduates, the former organisation of University of Wales Graduates.
Following the reconfiguration of the University in 2007, in which the constitution and name of the organisation were changed, these awards are now administered on behalf of the University by the University of Wales Alumni Office (which is part of the Vice-Chancellor’s Office).
For more information about any of the scholarship below, including full regulations, eligibility criteria, and application forms, please contact the University of Wales Alumni Office.
The Guild of Graduates Study Awards
Available to Graduates of the University of Wales, the aim of the Study Award is to support academic study and research projects or similar activity where alternative sources of support are not available. They are not intended to supplement scholarships and grants for higher degree research, but applications for work related to research projects will not be ruled out if it can be shown that the receipt of an award can extend the scope of such projects.
The Guild of Graduates Publication Grants
Grants may be awarded by the University to assist in the publication of scholarly work. Applications for grants may be made by the Sections and Branches of the University of Wales Alumni Association, and by individual Graduates of the University. Joint applications by co-authors of a proposed publication will be considered provided at least one of them holds a University of Wales award.
Guild of Graduates Postgraduate Scholarships
Two Postgraduate Scholarships will be awarded from time to time and as funds permit. The Scholarships are to be used to support postgraduate study leading to a higher degree of the University of Wales. One of the Scholarships will be awarded to a graduate of the University of Wales who studied for their award at a University of Wales Collaborative Centre, the second Scholarship will be awarded to a graduate of the University of Wales who studied for their award at one of the Institutions of Higher Education in Wales.
