Oxford Scholarships For African Human Rights Advocates

March 6, 2013

Commonwealth Scholarship Commission / Vice-Chancellor Oxford Scholarships For African Human Rights Advocates

The Commonwealth Scholarship Commission and the Vice-Chancellor of Oxford University are jointly funding five scholarships for candidates from developing African Commonwealth countries to study on the MSt in International Human Rights Law, starting September 2013.

The awards are intended for human rights advocates from developing African Commonwealth countries who would be unable, without assistance, to take up their place on the course. They provide course and college fees at the University of Oxford over two years, a stipend to cover living costs and return air travel from the scholar’s home country for each residential session.

In order to apply for this scheme applicants must submit their application to the University of Pretoria by 15 April 2013 where an initial assessment of applications will take place. Shortlisted applications will then be forwarded to the University of Oxford for further assessment.
