University of Greenwich: University of Greenwich announces partnership with Aziz foundation

Greenwich has become one of the Foundation’s Preferred Partners, having demonstrated a commitment to making higher education accessible at the postgraduate level to BME students and those from lower socio-economic groups.

Through the partnership, the university will offer up to three new masters scholarships specifically for British Muslims to undertake postgraduate study.

The Aziz Foundation was set up as a family foundation in 2015 and has to date has invested over £5.7 million in over 400 scholarships.

The scholarships directly align with the university’s determination to eliminate the degree awarding gap by 2030 – a goal that is incorporated within its new institutional strategy.

Programme manager at the Aziz foundation, Dr Zain Sardar said, “I am overjoyed that the Foundation will be working closely with an institution that has done so much for social mobility in the UK. We look forward to extending opportunities to British Muslims through this scholarship scheme, and contributing to efforts to promote social inclusion at the University of Greenwich.”
