Sustainability Scholarship at De Montfort University, UK
We are pleased to announce a new Sustainability Scholarship at De Montfort University, UK for the September 2020 study.
De Montfort University has a long-standing and ambitious commitment to sustainability, which means seeking social, economic and environmental well-being. The pursuit of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for 2030, which address issues such as poverty, hunger, clean energy and health, are the centerpiece of the University’s strategic plan. The university aims to achieve positive impacts on sustainability through its teaching, research and external partnerships. This work continues in all of our faculties and departments, as well as through dedicated teams and projects. The Education for Sustainable Development project works with course leaders, staff and students to ensure that sustainability issues are addressed in all DMU courses and wider activities. The Sustainable DMU team aims to ensure that sustainability is at the heart of DMU’s operational decision-making, research activity and external partnerships.
Postgraduate study at DMU allows our students to make a positive difference for society in their future careers and as citizens of the world. For our international students, this experience can provide the skills, confidence and connections necessary to meet sustainability challenges in their home country, in the UK or elsewhere. The Sustainable Development Scholarship Program aims to help high-level students come to DMU and develop the skills they need to make a difference. We are also looking for our sustainability researchers to support DMU’s work on sustainability, both during university studies and in the future as part of the DMU alumni network.
Our postgraduate scholarships will offer a £ 4,000 discount on the total value of course fees and will be awarded to 4 exceptional students domiciled outside the UK and the European Union. This scholarship is open to all postgraduate courses taught. Fellows will be asked to report to the jury halfway through their studies on their continuation to prioritize sustainability in their academic work, and in their extracurricular engagement and their post-study plans.
The deadline to apply is Friday, July 31, 2020 at midnight for the September 2020 return to school. A selection committee will meet to select the recipients and all candidates will be informed of the result.
