Via The Refugee Support Network

*The Schwab and Westheimer Trust is delighted to announce a new scholarship for students from asylum-seeking backgrounds. *

This new scholarship, supported by the Marks Family Charitable Trust, is open to students embarking on a three year humanities degree programme at undergraduate level, or a postgraduate masters degree in humanities. Only candidates with proven excellent academic record/achievement will be considered.

The scholarship will cover ‘home’ tuition fees (up to £9,500 per year).

Applicants will need to demonstrate that they can cover their living costs whilst at university. The scholarship will be awarded to students who have an asylum-seeking background and people who are not eligible for student finance will be prioritised.

Applications will open on 15th June 2019, and the deadline for applications is midnight on 9th July 2019. Interviews for successful candidates will be held in July 2019, in London.
