Eligible Countries: sub-Saharan African countries
Country to Study: United Kingdom
Scholarship Provider: University of Sussex
The Economics Department at the University of Sussex is pleased to offer masters scholarship for suitably excellent students from selected sub-Saharan African countries on either the Development Economics MSc or Economics MSc.
The focus on selected African countries is motivated by a dearth in existing funding opportunities for well qualified African students. Our Masters programmes in both economics and development economics also benefit from having students from African backgrounds who bring important personal experiences from developing countries that can be shared with other students from more developed countries.
The scholarship is open to candidates from the following ub-Saharan African countries:
Angola, Benin, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Congo, Cote D’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Malawi, Mali, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Sudan, South Sudan, Swaziland, Tanzania, Togo, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
- Have completed your undergraduate degree in Africa.
- Have been offered and accepted a place on either the Development Economics MSc or Economics MSc to start in September 2017.
