Africa Initiative for Governance (AIG) Scholarships 2017/2018 for Study in the University of Oxford, UK (Fully Funded)

Application Deadline: Monday 24 October 2016

The AIG Scholarships are postgraduate awards to support outstanding individuals in undertaking the Masters of Public Policy (MPP) programme at the Blavatnik School of Government (BSG), University of Oxford, and provide them with a transformative experience.  There are five AIG Scholarships available for 2017-2018 that cover fees, accommodation and living expenses.
To achieve its objectives, the AIG will fund scholarships for outstanding Nigerians and Ghanaians to undertake intensive post-graduate world-class training in governance and public policy.

AIG have entered into a partnership with the University of Oxford’s Blavatnik School of Government (BSG) to provide this training. Beginning in 2017, five scholarships will be awarded to Nigerian and Ghanaian candidates to attend the BSG and undergo a Master’s of Public Policy (MPP) degree. Upon graduation, AIG scholars will be expected to return home and apply their learning experience as change agents in their home country’s public sector.

The AIG Scholarship Programme is targeted at graduates between the ages of 25 and 35, some of whom may have work experience. The scholars will be exceptionally intelligent graduates who have excelled academically as well as in other areas of their lives.
