The scholarship supported by the Marks Family Charitable Trust is open to students embarking on a postgraduate degree programme (Masters or Doctorate). Candidates must be able to demonstrate how their chosen degree will make a valuable contribution to society. Only exceptional candidates with proven academic excellence will be considered.
The scholarship will cover ‘home’ tuition fees (up to £9,500 per year). Applicants will need to demonstrate that they can cover their living costs whilst at university. The scholarship will be awarded to students who have an asylum seeking background and people who are not eligible for student finance will be prioritised.
Applications will open on 26th May 2021 and close at midnight on the 26th June 2021.
