The National Archives offers bursaries to individuals who are passionate about embarking on a career in the archives sector. The bursaries support candidates in gaining a qualification by providing financial support and helping to address the socio-economic barrier that exists for some who are considering entering into the archives sector. The scheme provides financial support for a one-year full-time professional preparation qualification. This could be an MA or equivalent, including Archives, Records management, Information management or Humanities computing courses.

The bursary scheme is currently under review.

Information about future opportunities will be published here when it becomes available.
