Loughborough University
Loughborough University is delighted to announce full-fee
scholarships for international full-time taught postgraduate students who are
currently domiciled (permanently living) in Africa.

These will be known as the Loughborough University Graduate
School Development Trust Africa Scholarships. The scholarships 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 scholarships are being funded through a combination of

external funding and University funds. 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.
Application Process and Eligibility Criteria

For 2014 entry the scholarship application procedure is an
open competition. Students may only apply for the scholarship after an offer

apply for the scholarship using the application form which can be downloaded

The deadline for applications is 30th April 2016.
