African Leadership Centre offers new scholarships in leadership and peacebuilding
The Richemont International Scholarships, each valued at £11,760, will support UK students of African heritage to study the MSc Global Leadership & Peacebuilding.
The African Leadership Centre is offering new master’s awards for two full-time students who wish to enact transformative change within Africa and within their communities.
The awards, to study on the MSc Global Leadership & Peacebuilding course in the 2023-24 academic year, are open to UK students of African heritage who are eligible for ‘Home fees’.
The MSc Global Leadership & Peacebuilding looks at the mutually reinforcing links between global leadership, peace and society, especially in developing nations. The course equips students to be next-generation leaders who can solve global problems and advance peacebuilding.
The scholarships, supported by Richemont International, also cover the £400 cost of a Leadership Weekend Workshop which is a part of the MSc programme. The workshop is an opportunity for students to analyse different scenarios and learn how leadership styles affect outcomes.
To apply, interested candidates must complete the King’s online application process for the MSc Global Leadership & Peacebuilding including a line in their personal statement on why they are applying for this award.
Applicants also need to submit a 1-2 minute video recording in which they identify a leadership and peacebuilding challenge relevant to Africa and the change they want to make with respect to that challenge.
Applications to the MSc Global Leadership & Peacebuilding for students with ‘Home fee’ status remain open until 24 August 2023. Students are encouraged to apply early to secure a place on the course.
