The University of Oxford has announced that ten new scholarships are to be made available to graduates admitted for study at the Blavatnik School of Government. It means at least one-third of the students in the School's first cohort in 2012 could each receive full funding of up to a maximum of £47,250.
The scholarships programme is being developed to ensure that the very best students in the world attend the Blavatnik School, regardless of their financial circumstances. The ten scholarships will cover all tuition fees and living costs for students taking the School's innovative one-year Master of Public Policy degree.
Five of the scholarships for the school will be jointly funded by the Weidenfeld Scholarships and Leadership Programme, administered by the London-based Institute for Strategic Dialogue, and the Chevening Scholarship scheme, funded by the British government's Foreign and Commonwealth Office. The Chevening-Weidenfeld Scholarships will be open to candidates from Eastern Europe, the Caucasus, North Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia, India and Indonesia.
