Sir Siegmund Warburg Scholarship

MSc Scholarship to promote human rights in Israel and Palestine/Occupied Territories

Eligible applicants will be required to submit a personal statement in which they should explain how they meet the criteria set out for the scholarship and how they envisage putting their study programme to practical use.

Scholarship amount

The scholarship has a value of £28,000 which will cover the tuition fee of £21,576 with the remainder available to support living expenses. Further LSE funds may be available.

One scholarship is awarded each year.
