In the realm of education, the University of Essex stands as a beacon for nurturing remarkable women. The Women of the Future Scholarships, a testament to Essex’s rich tradition, are designed to champion bright and inspirational women globally. This initiative, offering thirty scholarships, aims to provide women worldwide with the necessary skills and knowledge, fostering their journey to leadership and driving positive change. The scholarships, tailored for non-UK women, specifically target those pursuing taught Masters programs at Essex for the academic year 2017-18.
Full-time Masters Degree Program in Any Field
The Women of the Future Scholarships extend to a full-time Masters Degree Program in any area of study. However, it’s noteworthy that two of these awards, generously supported by the Edge Foundation, are earmarked for students within the Department of Sociology. The scholarships exclude Graduate Diplomas, PG Certificates, and PG Diplomas.
