Allan and Nesta Ferguson Scholarships for African Students at SOAS 2018/2019
Thanks to the generosity of the Allan and Nesta Ferguson Charitable trust, three Allan and Nesta Ferguson Scholarships have been established for African Students (African nationals and resident in Africa), who wish to undertake a taught masters course at SOAS
Each Allan and Nesta Ferguson Scholarship covers tuition fees in full and provides a maintenance grant of £7,000. In addition to this, International Student's House (ISH) provides free accommodation and a food scholarship covering 3 meals a day. The Ferguson scholarship is awarded on the basis of academic merit.
Students offered an Allan and Nesta Ferguson Scholarship must take it up in the academic year 2018/19 and it cannot be carried forward to a later year.
