The Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations at Coventry University has been designated as a partner university for the Commonwealth Distance Learning Scholarships for courses starting in September 2018.
These opportunities are offered for five students to study on either our MA in Peace and Conflict Studies or MA in Maritime Security. Candidates must come from the least developed and lower middle income Commonwealth countries (as specified by the Commission), these opportunities, funded by the UK Department for International Devlopment, enable talented and motivated individuals to gain the knowledge and skills required for sustainable development and are aimed at those unable to study full time in the UK.
The deadline for scholarship applications to be submitted to the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission is 23:59 (BST) on 20th June 2018. View the full terms and conditions for the scholarships.
Please note that applicants must also have applied for the programme of choice and secured an offer to study on the course before submitting their scholarship application. As a result, the deadline for applying for an eligible Coventry University course is 23:59 hrs (BST) on Wednesday 6th June 2018. It is the responsibility of Coventry University to select the candidates to be recommended for an award of a Commonwealth Distance Learning Scholarship. Selection will be through a review of the application documents, a writing sample and an interview.
Ferguson Trust Scholarships
Ferguson Trust Scholarships are made available through the generosity of The Allan and Nesta Ferguson Charitable Trust to support students wishing to pursue our Peace and Conflict Studies and Maritime Security academic streams. The scholarships are designed for candidates from low-income countries and lower middle-income countries, which, ordinarily, are conflict-affected. We apologise to everyone from the EU, Japan, USA and areas with comparable incomes, we are not allowed to offer these scholarships no matter how strong your application. Please see the World Bank's country and lending page for a definitive list of countries.
The competition for funding is intense and the applications are of a very high standard, prior to applying for a scholarship please ensure you have a formal offer letter.
After checking your eligibility you should refer to the scholarship terms & conditions, complete the application form with great care and return this to email@example.com by 20 July 2018.
Please note any incomplete applications and late submissions will not be considered. The awarding panel is situated within the Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations and will assess all application on their individual merit (academic ability/ work experience and financial circumstances).
Allocation will be decided on assessment of the following:
- A complete scholarship application form including a detailed statement of support which should not exceed 500 words by 20 July 2018. In this form you should demonstrate your capacity and commitment to undertake and complete the programme and explain how the programme is aligned to your future aspirations and how it will benefit your professional development.
- Your contribution towards your tuition fees.
