The School of Geography and the Environment (SoGE) is excited to offer one fully funded MSc scholarship for UK Black and Mixed-Black applicants. Eligible applicants will be ordinarily resident in the United Kingdom, and of Black or Mixed-Black background taking up postgraduate study on one of our five MSc Programmes.
SoGE aims to attract and admit students with outstanding academic potential irrespective of their background or ability to pay. Commitment to equality and diversity is at the heart of the academic mission of SoGE, and the SoGE MSc Scholarship will reduce barriers to access to a group currently underrepresented across our postgraduate taught programmes.
The studentship will cover University tuition fees along with a maintenance allowance (at standard UKRI rates) and research allowance, and will be available starting in the 2022/23 academic year.
Applications are welcome from eligible candidates with a background in Geography or a related social science, physical or environmental discipline and wishing to study on one of SoGE’s five MSc programmes:
- MSc in Biodiversity, Conservation and Management
- MSc in Environmental Change and Management
- MSc in Nature, Society and Environmental Governance
- MSc in Sustainability, Enterprise and the Environment
- MSc in Water Science, Policy and Management
Candidates wishing to apply for this scholarship should apply for a place on one of our MSc programmes in the usual way, by Friday 21 January 2022. This is our deadline for considering all scholarship applications.
