The University of Oxford in the UK is offering the Julius Baer St Edmund Hall Scholarship to African Nationals in 2019.
This scholarship has been made available through the philanthropy of Julius Baer Group who wish to support disadvantaged students who, upon completion of studies, wish to return to Africa and play a role in the development of their community and/or country. The award is made available to enable study at Oxford and may be used alongside other funding available to you. As part of this commitment Julius Baer may choose to offer the award holder a fully paid internship at Julius Baer (most likely in one of their African offices) and this is to be arranged directly between Julius Baer and the award holder.
You can apply for their scholarships if you are an applicant to, or current member of, the University of Oxford entering the first or second year of a research programme for which St Edmund Hall admits graduate students. All awards are conditional on the holder becoming a member of St Edmund Hall.
