Edinburgh Law School is delighted to announce the launch of the Africa LLM/MSc Tercentenary Scholarship, a new series of scholarships for African students applying for the LLM in Law, the LLMs in Commercial, European, Innovation or International Law, or the MSc in Criminology and Criminal Justice.

One scholarship will be available each academic year until 2013/2014.

The award is open to all suitably qualified African applicants; however, the scholarship is particularly aimed at applicants who are citizens of (and normally resident in) Angola, Mozambique, South Africa and Zimbabwe.

If no suitable application is received from these countries, the scholarship will pass to the next most suitable applicant. The award will be made solely on academic merit.

The scholarship will cover the costs of postgraduate tuition fees for one academic year.

The successful applicant will also be given a partial maintenance grant to help fund their studies at the University of Edinburgh. The maintenance grant will not cover the full costs of studying at the university and applicants should ensure they have sufficient financial support to complete their studies.
