Scholarship and funding options

She held the Chair in the Department for 25 years and conducted major studies on the impact of television on children, schooling and socialisation and political behaviour. In her memory Professor Sir Ralf Dahrendorf, Professor Harold Kelley, Professor Serge Moscovici among others set up the Hilde Himmelweit Memorial Fund to offer up to two Himmelweit Scholarships of £3,000. These are awarded annually and are open to students of all nationalities applying to the MSc in Social and Cultural Psychology.

"Studying for the MSc in Social Psychology I found the support of my fellow students, and the involvement of staff in the various research groups and projects, truly fired my enthusiasm for the subject. 

It was undoubtedly such encouragement that enabled me to be awarded the Hilde Himmelweit prize, which gave me a much greater confidence to pursue my studies by undertaking a PhD, as well as being a pleasing reward for a year of hard work!"
