The Economics Department at the University of Sussex offers an annual Masters scholarship for suitably qualified candidates from selected sub-Saharan African countries on either the Development Economics MSc or Economics MSc.
Launched in Autumn 2008, this scholarship is funded thanks to the support of economics alumni and the Department of Economics.
The 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.
Worth of award
The scholarship includes the full payment of the overseas tuition fee and a maintenance grant of £10,000 but does not include travel expenses to and from the United Kingdom.
