New opportunity for university funding: the Brittan Scholarship

16 June 2017
"Leon believed that education leading to continued intellectual curiosity opened up not only an individual's future but the potential of whole communities and nations" – Diana Brittan

The Brittan scholarship is open to students at either Masters or Undergraduate level who have no more than two years further to study. This scholarship is in memory of Lord Leon Brittan who was himself the child of an immigrant and an asylum-seeking family, and who had huge sympathy for people seeking an education.

The scholarship is available for students of the following subjects:

  • International Law
  • International Aid
  • International Business

The amount awarded will be tuition fees (at home rates between £9,000 - £12,000 per year) and a small maintenance grant (maximum £5,000 per year) and it will last for up to two years.

Applicants who have an asylum-seeking background are encouraged to apply. Applications are invited to apply using the attached Application form below before the deadline date of 5th July 2017 and emailed to [email protected] Interviews will take place on Tuesday 11 July 2017 in central London.
