Information about the funding
The Shared Scholarship Scheme is a joint initiative between the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission (with funding from DFID), and UK universities, to support scholarships for students from developing Commonwealth countries who would not otherwise be able to study in the United Kingdom. The aim of the scheme is to assist students, from developing Commonwealth countries, of excellent academic calibre who, for financial reasons, are unable to study in Britain and are outside the scope of other British Government Support Schemes but would benefit from higher education in the United Kingdom, enabling them to contribute toward the development of their home countries.
The 2013/14 CSSS awards at King's College London will only be open to students applying for any one of the following postgraduate taught (Masters) programmes only:
~ MA/MSc Environment & Development
~ MA/MSc Tourism, Environment & Development
~ MA/MSc Disasters, Adaptation & Development
~ MSc Clinical Nursing
~ MSc Advanced Care in Dementia
~ MSc Neuroimaging
~ MSc Health Psychology
Up to 8 awards will be available.
The award will cover full tuition fees, airfare to and from the UK, a monthly maintenance allowance, and additional thesis grant and travel allowance.
In order to be considered for an award, candidates MUST submit the following documents by the DEADLINE of 1 MARCH 2013:
a) an online admissions application to King's College London for one of the eligible programmes which can be accessed via https://myapplication.kcl.ac.uk/
b) an online Commonwealth Scholarship Commission application via the Electronic Application System (EAS) which can be accessed via http://cscuk.dfid.gov.uk/apply/eas/
Failure to submit both application forms will result in your application being ineligible for an award.
Eligible applications will be reviewed internally by King's, and King's will nominate candidates directly to the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission (CSC) for final consideration.
Applicants will be able to track the status of your their application via the EAS.
