The Rotary Club of Londonderry Peace Scholarship at Ulster University’s International Conflict Research Institute (INCORE) is now open for applications.
This is the first year of this scholarship for the full-time option of the MSc in Applied Peace and Conflict Studies at INCORE. The scholarship is supported by the Rotary Club of Londonderry as a legacy to the Rotary Global Peace Forum, held in Derry~Londonderry in May 2013.
The Rotary Club of Londonderry is committed to the upliftment of Northern Ireland and hence the first scholarships will be restricted to those indigenous to and resident in Northern Ireland. In 2016 the Scholarship scheme will be complemented with a full international scholarship.
The Scholarships for the 2015/2016 academic year is open to:
All applicants indigenous to and resident in Northern Ireland who have been offered a full-time place on the MSc in Applied Peace and Conflict Studies and have made a firm commitment to Ulster University during the admissions phase; and who can demonstrate that their work post-study will impact on areas of conflict (post-/mid-conflict).
The Scholarship will provide the recipient with £5,250 to be used in support of full fees, with the remainder to be used to support travel and living expenses and study materials.
Two scholarships will be awarded for the academic year 2015/16, with a further one being awarded in 2016/17 along with another in 2017/18. The local scholarships will be complemented by a full international scholarship in 2016/2017.
Applications are now open for the 2015/16 academic year. The application deadline is strictly 12pm, 21 August 2015.
