St Antony’s College, University of Oxford, in partnership with the international integrated energy company Eni invites applications for the Eni Scholarships for African Students in the UK for the 2022/23 academic year.
This scholarship will allow St Antony’s to admit up to three of the best African students. This is irrespective of means and will add immeasurably to the diverse and intellectual character of the College. It is part of a joint initiative between Eni & St Antony’s College to invest in and strengthen African leadership.
St Antony’s and Eni are equally keen to provide encouragement and where possible, structured incentives for Eni Scholars. This will enable them to continue their studies or find useful employment back in their home countries after graduating from Oxford.
Worth of Award
The scholarship covers
- 100% of fees, and an annual grant for living costs. As expected, the stipend for courses with different durations will be adjusted accordingly.
- The scholarship also covers one economy return airfare from your home country to the UK at the start and end of your course.
The scholarships are open to applicants who are ordinarily resident in Angola, Ghana, Mozambique, Nigeria, and the Republic of the Congo (Congo-Brazzaville). Preference will be given to applicants whose first degree is from an African university.
