University of Liverpool: University Liverpool launches new Humanitarian Scholarship for those fleeing conflict and persecution

The University of Liverpool has created three fully-funded post-graduate scholarships for students who are fleeing war and persecution.

The scholarships are open to people who have who have recognised status as either refugees or are under humanitarian protection under the 1951 Refugee Convention. This status must be held outside of the UK.

The University of Liverpool already offers a number of scholarships for people who have fled persecution and arrived in the UK through its asylum seekers bursary. These new scholarships will extend that opportunity to allow people who are have refugee status in other parts of the world, who cannot access education where they are, to have the opportunity to continue their academic careers at post-graduate level.

Further information about the scholarships and how to apply can be found here. University of Liverpool Humanitarian Scholarships for Masters Programmes. – University of Liverpool

The deadline for applications is 5th August. We look forward to welcoming successful applicants to Liverpool in September.

The University of Liverpool has a long and proud history of supporting people fleeing conflict, from providing sanctuary to the Polish School of Architecture from 1941-5, to hosting academics today through its support to Council of Academics at Risk (Cara). This scholarship continues that commitment.
