Thanks to the generosity of the Allan and Nesta Ferguson Charitable Trust, three Ferguson scholarships have been established for African Students (African nationals and residents in Africa) who wish to undertake a taught masters course at SOAS.
Each Allan and Nesta Ferguson Scholarship has a total value of £25,000, which will be put towards tuition fees. If tuition fees are less than this amount, the remainder will be paid out as a stipend.
Applicants FOR Allan & Nesta Ferguson Scholarships should:
be a resident in low-income or lower-middle-income countries (as defined by the World Bank) and preferably from low-income households
hold an undergraduate degree at the first-class level
new scholarship applicants must have applied to SOAS but are not required to have received an offer of admission by the scholarship deadline. An offer will need to have been received by the time the relevant panel meets to discuss scholarship applications
applicants must meet the English language condition of their offer of admission to study at SOAS as soon as possible
please note that these scholarships do not cover funding or even allow for Pre-sessionals
