The Africa LLM/MSc Tercentenary Scholarship is open to all African students applying for the LLMs in Law; Commercial Law; European Law; Innovation, Technology and the Law; International Law; Global Environment and Climate Change Law; Intellectual Property Law and also the MSc in Criminology and Criminal Justice.
One scholarship will be available each academic year until 2013/2014.
The award is open to all suitably qualified African applicants; however, the 2011/2012 scholarship is particularly aimed at applicants who are citizens of (and normally resident in) Eastern and Central Africa, including Zambia, Ethiopia, Malawi, DR Congo, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda and Somalia. If no suitable application is received from these countries, the scholarship will pass to the next most suitable applicant. The award will be made solely on academic merit.
The scholarship will cover the costs of postgraduate tuition fees for one academic year. The successful applicant will also be given a partial maintenance grant (£6500) to help fund their studies at the University of Edinburgh. The maintenance grant will not cover the full costs of studying at the university and applicants should ensure they have sufficient financial support to complete their studies.
