Deadline: March 14, 2014
Applications are invited from eligible international candidates for the Eni scholarship to study at St Antony’s College, University of Oxford. The international integrated energy company Eni in partnership with St. Anthony’s College, is offering five students from Angola, Ghana, Libya, Mozambique and Nigeria the opportunity to study for a fully funded degree in 2014-15. This will allow St Antony’s to admit some of the best African students irrespective of means and will add immeasurably to the diverse and intellectual character of the College. This is part of a joint initiative between Eni & St Antony’s College to invest in and strengthen African leadership.
The scholarship also covers 100% of university and college fees, and an annual grant for living costs (the rate was £12,900 for 12 month courses and £9,675 for 9 month courses in 2013-14). It also includes one economy return airfare from your home country to the UK at the start and end of your course.
- The scholarships are open to applicants who are ordinarily resident in Angola, Ghana, Libya, Mozambique and Nigeria. Preference will be given to applicants whose first degree is from an African university.
- The scholarships will be awarded on the basis of both academic merit and potential and financial need. Preference will be given to applicants who have clear ambitions to use their accumulated learning to benefit their home country after graduation.
Please ensure you meet the requirements for entry to your course, including English language requirements. See the University’s course guide for more information.
