The Loughborough Development Trust Africa Scholarship will cover 100% of the course fees for your chosen postgraduate taught course for one year


Loughborough University invites applications for Development Trust Africa Scholarships for full-time taught postgraduate students in 2020.


The scholarships are being funded through a combination of generous external funding and University funds. The University will award a limited number of scholarships, and the standards required are very high.





Students will be expected to fund their travel and maintenance costs through other sources. Evidence of maintenance funds must be included in the scholarship application.


Application Process and Eligibility Criteria


For 2020 entry the scholarship application procedure is an open competition. Students may only apply for the scholarship after an offer for a place has been made. Students who are in possession of an offer (conditional or unconditional) of a place on a postgraduate taught course can apply for the scholarship using the application form which can be downloaded on the official website.


Applications will be initially shortlisted and the final decision on the awards will be made by a selection panel of senior staff of the University. The selection panel will use the following eligibility criteria when assessing applications:


  • Currently domiciled (permanently living) in Africa

  • Evidence of exceptional academic achievement (normally a 1st Class Honours Degree)

  • Commitment to return to their home country on completion of postgraduate programme

  • Evidence of the ability and commitment to making a significant contribution to their home country on their return

  • Full understanding of the costs involved in coming to study and live in the UK

  • Evidence of strong motivation and initiative to secure funds to cover the remainder of the costs involved

Applicants are advised to spend considerable effort ensuring that this application reaches the selectors in a form that is clear, well presented and which reflects your abilities and motivation.
