The Brittan Scholarship


"Leon believed that education leading to continued intellectual curiosity opened up not only an individual's future but the potential of whole communities and nations" 

– Diana Brittan

The Brittan scholarship is open to students at either Masters or Undergraduate level who have no more than two years further to study. This scholarship is in memory of Lord Leon Brittan who was himself the child of an immigrant and an asylum seeking family, and who had huge sympathy for people seeking an education.

The scholarship is available for students of the following subjects:



International Aid

International Business

The amount awarded will be tuition fees (at home rates between £9,000 - £12,000 per year) and a small maintenance grant (maximum £5,000 per year) and it will last for up to two years. Applicants who have an asylum seeking background are encouraged to apply. 

Applications will open on 1st May 2018, and the deadline for applications is midnight on 31st May 2018. Interviews for successful candidates will be held in June 2018, in London. Please note that there is no advantage for students who submit their applications first, so please take your time and fill in applications carefully.
