Tripoli, 21 October 2013:
Italian oil company ENI and St Anthony’s College, Oxford, are offering five students the chance to study for . . .[restrict]a fully-funded post-graduate degree for the academic year 2014-15.
The scheme is part of an initiative between ENI and St Anthony’s to invest in and strengthen potential African leadership, by offering top students – irrespective of background or means – the chance to study abroad. One student will be selected from Libya, and one each from Angola, Ghana, Mozambique and Nigeria.
Preference will be given to students whose first degree is from an African university.
The scholarships will be for post-graduate courses, either Masters, MPhil or PhD for study in areas including African studies, modern Middle Eastern studies, development studies and international relations.
Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of both academic merit and financial need. Each one will include full fees for one year’s study and an annual grant to cover living expenses in the UK. An economy return airfare will also be included.
The deadline for applications is 14 March 2014.
