The RCA is committed to celebrating diversity, eliminating discrimination and promoting equality of opportunity to all.

The College believes it is vital to provide visible pathways of access to study across our programmes for those suffering financial hardship and for those from under-represented groups.

In 2022, the RCA gave £1m from its own operating surplus to create the Sir Frank Bowling Scholarships to support individuals from under-represented communities, prioritising Black and African diaspora British applicants and / or including those facing significant financial hardship.

The Sir Frank Bowling Scholarship will support students from Black African and Caribbean diaspora heritage, or mixed Black African and Caribbean diaspora heritage, across MA, MRes and PhD study. Each year, 24 enrolled students will be awarded financial support for their tuition fees and living expenses in the duration of their time at RCA.

Alongside this, through the support of generous individuals, charitable trusts and foundations and corporate supporters, the RCA is proud to offer a number of named scholarships. Availability of named scholarships is limited and almost all are restricted to certain MA programmes.

The RCA offers a range of scholarships that are open to students with refugee and asylum seeker status. These scholarships cover the full cost of study at the RCA; some scholarships also offer support towards living expenses.
