MSc Scholarship for African Students in Economics at University of Sussex in UK, 2018

MSc Scholarship for African Students in Economics at University of Sussex in UK, 2018

The Economics Department of the University of Sussex is pleased to offer a Masters Scholarship each year for qualified candidates from selected sub-Saharan African countries. The full Master’s fee will be waived and the student will receive a maintenance grant of £ 10,000, paid in installments.

The focus on selected African countries is motivated by a lack of existing funding opportunities for well-qualified African students. Our master’s degree programs in both economics and development economics also benefit from the fact that students with an African background bring important personal experiences from developing countries that can be shared with other students from more developed countries.

The University of Sussex is a public research university in Falmer, near Brighton, Sussex. The University of Sussex will extend a limited number of scholarships to attend the 2017 International Summer School. These come in the form of fee waivers and accommodation costs for students from developing countries who have high potential for future leadership in their field of study or career.
