The school notes:

This is a competitive process and not all applications will be successful; a panel of senior members of staff will select the strongest application. Consideration will also be given as to whether candidates may have experienced discrimination because of personal characteristics such as their gender, race, religion, disability or sexual orientation."

The deadline for the application for the scholarship is Tuesday, May 28.

The master's prospects who meet the criteria are to apply using a link provided on the school's website.
