The Department of Economics at the University of Essex is pleased to announce that four scholarships, each worth £5,000, will be awarded to full-time students who will be enrolled for an MSc programme in the Department of Economics. Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of academic merit.


To be considered for one of these awards, applications for admission onto one of our Master’s degree schemes should be received by the Department no later than 30 April.

Two applications are necessary: for admission to the University for an MSc scheme taught in the Department of Economics, and, separately, for one of the economics scholarships.

Scholarship Application Procedure

In addition to an application for admission to the University, consideration for an economics scholarship requires completion and submission of an application form, which is available in MS Word format or pdf format.

Each scholarship application must be accompanied by a Statement of Purpose explaining the academic reasons that the applicant believes justifies the award of a scholarship.

Applicants should also request at least one of their academic referees to comment on their suitability for a scholarship (or, alternatively, append a separate reference with the scholarship application).

Decisions about awards of the scholarships will therefore be made on the basis of the admission documentation, the academic references, and the applicant’s Statement of Purpose.

Completed applications should be submitted to:
