Applicants for this scholarship must be able to demonstrate that they intend to use the skills and knowledge gained for international and humanitarian purposes and will need to outline the ways in which they intend to do this in their scholarship application form.
Single accommodation will be available in Collingwood College and it is intended that the scholar will be a resident member of the Collingwood community. However, if the student has specific accommodation requirements which cannot be provided by Collingwood, they are free to make alternative arrangements and should not feel that this should stop them applying for this scholarship. Whether resident in Collingwood College or not, the scholarship recipient will be expected to contribute to life in Collingwood. This may include presenting your research and work at college events and writing about your work for college publications.
Applications will be considered by a panel of senior academic staff at the University.
