Offer: Commonwealth Commission/Chevening Scholarship: African Human Rights Advocates
The five scholarships provide fully funded opportunities for part-time postgraduate study in international human rights law at the University of Oxford, starting September 2012. The course of study is taught over 22 months and consists of two residential sessions in Oxford and two periods of distance learning. The scholarships are funded by the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission and the Foreign Office’s Chevening Scholarship Fund and are intended for human rights advocates from African Commonwealth countries who would be unable, without assistance, to take up their place on this course. Deadline for applications: March 30, 2012.
Subject to satisfactory progress, the scholarships lead to the award of a Master of Studies (MSt) in International Human Rights Law. Each scholarship provides 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.
