The Julius Nyerere Scholarship was set up in memory of Mwalimu Julius Nyerere who led Tanganyika to independence in 1961 and became the first prime minister and later president of Tanzania.
Nyerere received a scholarship in 1949 to attend the University of Edinburgh where he obtained a Masters of Arts degree in Economics and History.
He was the first Tanzanian to study at a British University and only the second to gain a University degree outside Africa.
The Julius Nyerere Master's Scholarship will cover the full overseas tuition fee, living costs of £10,000, and a return flight from Tanzania to the UK.
The scholarship is tenable for one academic year.
Tanzania Scholarship Application Eligibility Criteria:
The scholarship will be awarded to a Tanzanian citizen who is normally resident in Tanzania, and who is accepted for admission on a full-time basis for a postgraduate Master's programme of study at the University of Edinburgh.
Applicants should already have been offered a place at the University of Edinburgh and should have firmly accepted that offer or be intending to do so.
Tanzania Scholarship Criteria
The scholarship will be awarded broadly on the basis of academic merit with candidates requiring a Bachelor Degree equivalent to a UK first class or 2:1 Honours degree.
In addition to the above academic qualifications, the selection panel will also take into account the financial circumstances of applicants to ensure that as far as possible a student's financial situation does not impede a university education at the University of Edinburgh.
