SOAS University of London is delighted to announce a generous donation of £150,000 from the Allan and Nesta Ferguson Charitable Trust, renewing their support of scholarships for the next three academic years.

The Allan and Nesta Ferguson Scholarships were established for African students and are valued at £25,000 each. Each scholarship can be used towards fees and maintenance.

The Allan and Nesta Ferguson Charitable Trust has supported students at SOAS since 2013. The Scholarship has produced several graduates in subjects including Social Anthropology of Development, International Studies and Diplomacy and African Studies.

The Trust was set up in memory of two generations of the Ferguson family, to promote their particular interests in education, international friendship and understanding, and the promotion of world peace and development.
