Apply for the Development Trust Africa Scholarships at Loughborough University

Brief Description

The Loughborough Development Trust Africa Scholarships will cover 100% of the course fees for your chosen postgraduate taught course for one year (replacing any school/department or Loughborough University scholarships or bursaries you may already have been awarded). The scholarships are 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. You will be expected to fund your travel and maintenance costs through other sources. Evidence of maintenance funds must be included in the scholarship application.


  • 100% off tuition fees


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 first-class honours degree)

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

  • Evidence of the ability and commitment to make a significant contribution to your home country on your 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.
