Equity and Merit Scholarships for students 2022-2023

Deadline 31st August 2022

The UN's Sustainable Development Goals set the direction toward a better, more sustainable future for all. Our Equity and Merit Scholarships aim to empower young professionals in the Global South to deliver solutions to meet these interlinked goals.

Equity and Merit Scholarships are for academically excellent students who have the potential to make a significant contribution to sustainable development in their home countries.

The awards are intended for those who cannot afford to study in Manchester without a scholarship. We are committed to a policy of equal opportunity and all applications are considered on their merit. We particularly encourage women to apply. 

We offer two types of scholarship:  

  • Full-time, on-campus master’s (one-year duration).
  • Part-time, distance learning master’s (three to five years duration).

There are 30 scholarships (20 for full-time study and ten for online study) available each year for a range of courses in engineering, environment, health sciences, development, education, textiles and law. The scheme is open to applicants from Ethiopia, Malawi, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda and Zimbabwe. 

The scholarships cover full tuition fees, and for students who will be studying in Manchester, the award includes return international airfares, living expenses and visas.

Eligibility

Our master’s scholarships are aimed at talented applicants, especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds.

To apply for a scholarship, you will need: 

  • to be a resident citizen of Ethiopia, Malawi, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda or Zimbabwe, and have not previously studied outside of Africa (training of six months or less does not count);
  • at least two years of professional experience related to your chosen field of study (this does not include unpaid internships or voluntary work);
  • a bachelor’s degree (you must have graduated before September 2020) with an overall excellent grade. The awards are for academically outstanding students and typically this means that you are in the top 10% of your class;
  • to be committed to returning home and able to demonstrate the potential to make a positive impact on the future of your home country;
  • a clear idea of how studying at Manchester will benefit both your career and the wider community.
