Loughborough Development Trust Africa Scholarship
Scholarship Name Loughborough Development Trust Africa Scholarship
Academic Year 2023
Scholarship amount Discount 100% off tuition fees for one year
Nationality Any
Scholarship Deadline 30 April 2023

The Loughborough Development Trust Africa Scholarship will cover 100% of the course fees for your chosen postgraduate taught course for one year (replacing any departmental or Loughborough University scholarships or bursaries you may already have been awarded).

The University will award a limited number of scholarships, and the standards required are very high. 

Students will be expected to fund their travel and maintenance costs through other sources. Evidence of maintenance funds must be included in the scholarship application.

The scholarships are being funded through a combination of generous external funding and University funds.

Application process and eligibility criteria 

The scholarship application procedure is an open competition. Students may only apply for the scholarship after an offer for a place has been made. Students who are in possession of an offer (conditional or unconditional) of a place on a postgraduate taught course can apply for the scholarship using the application form which is available to download below.

Applications will be initially shortlisted and the final decision on the awards will be made by a selection panel of senior staff of the University. The selection panel will use the following eligibility criteria when assessing applications:

  • Currently domiciled (permanently living) in Africa

  • Evidence of exceptional academic achievement (normally a first-class honours degree)

  • Commitment to return to their home country on completion of their postgraduate programme

  • Evidence of the ability and commitment to making a significant contribution to their home country on their return

  • Full understanding of the costs involved in coming to study and live in the UK

  • Evidence of strong motivation and initiative to secure funds to cover the remainder of the costs involved

Applicants are advised to spend considerable effort ensuring that this application reaches the selectors in a form that is clear, well presented and which reflects their abilities and motivation.

Deadline

They will reopen for 2023/24 entry in early 2023, with a deadline of 30 April 2023.
