Eligibility for the Hatfield Lioness Postgraduate Scholarship

The course of study must be leading to a master's and not an MBA or a PhD.

Also, applicants must not be master's degree holders, and they must be known not to have the financial means to study in the UK.

Some of the benefits that will accrue to the selected candidate are a full waiver for tuition, allowance, payment for the cost of visa, living expenses and accommodation.

Students will first have to apply for admission at Durham University and be accepted into the school, and then proceed to apply for the scholarship once the form is available.
