Development Trust Africa Scholarships for Masters at Loughborough University in UK 2022

For full-time taught postgraduate students in 2022, Loughborough University is accepting applications for Development Trust Africa Scholarships.

The scholarships are made possible by a mix of generous outside contributions and University finances.

The University will only offer a small number of scholarships, and the requirements are quite stringent.

Other sources of funding will be requested of students for travel and maintenance fees. The scholarship application must contain proof of maintenance funding.

Worth of Scholarship

For candidates who choose a one-year postgraduate taught course, the scholarships will cover 100% of the course expenses (replacing any Departmental or Loughborough University scholarships or bursaries they may already have been awarded).

  • Promise to return to their native country after completing their postgraduate studies
  • Evidence of their skills and willingness to return to their native country and make a major impact
