One Deutsche Post DHL Scholarship with a value of up to £16,000 is available for students on the MSc in Carbon Finance who are normally resident in any country in Africa or any least developed country. A list of least developed countries can be found on the UN-OHRLLS website.
The scholarship is one of a set of Deutsche Post DHL Scholarships at the University of Edinburgh, which aim to attract the best and most motivated people to Edinburgh to play a part in building low carbon economies around the world. Further information is available from Scholarships and Student Funding.
The scholarship will be awarded on the basis of academic merit and the expected benefits to the student. To be considered for the scholarship, an applicant must already have been offered and accepted a place on the MSc in Carbon Finance. The scholarship will be put towards the applicant’s programme fee and does not provide any contribution to living costs.
Part-funding may be provided where the applicant has other scholarship part-funding, such that the combined funding does not exceed the programme fee. Candidates who already hold full sponsorship are not eligible.
Applicants should be aware that the scholarship does not cover the entire programme fee, and the successful applicant will be required to pay the standard programme deposit of £1,500 within 28 days of receiving their offer to secure their place on the programme.

Deadline for receipt of essay: 26 April 2013
