Imperial College London Shawki Saad PhD Scholarship 2024 For African Students


The scholarship will be for students joining the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and is supported by an endowed gift from the late Professor Shawki Saad, a Professor of Civil Engineering at Khartoum University in Sudan. The programme will support four students and will fully cover the cost of tuition fees and support students with a stipend and travel costs. The new scholarship programme builds on a previous scholarship for students from Sudan. The new scholarship programme was announced alongside a student prize for sustainability-related research in sub-Saharan Africa. The student prize and scholarship will help College efforts to tackle global systemic challenges in engineering and sustainability.


The programme will fully cover the cost of overseas tuition fees for 3 years, a monthly living cost stipend (£20,622 for 23_24)  for 3.5 years and travel costs (flight and visa) for the successful applicant. 


The Shawki Saad PhD Scholarship is a fully funded programme to support students ordinarily resident in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Deadline: May 24, 2024
