The 2016 Alphawood Scholarships at SOAS are open from November 2015. The closing date for applications is 18 December at 1pm.
The Alphawood Scholarship will cover tuition fees in full, and a generous maintenance allowance towards the costs of living and studying in central London, as well as flights to and from the UK at the start and end of the course. Visa costs will also be covered. The maintenance allowance will be provided in line with the Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC) guidelines for London (Doctoral) and will be calculated pro-rata for programmes of less than a year. It is expected to cover the cost of accommodation.
The scholarships will be open to students wishing to study a range of courses from Postgraduate Diploma to Doctorate level. The purpose of the Scholarships programme is capacity building therefore support will be available to successful candidates who require extra English language training.
Please note that successful candidates will be asked to provide approved English language test results to demonstrate that they hold the minimum UK Borders Agency requirement to obtain a Tier 4 Student visa.
