Thanks to the generosity of the Allan and Nesta Ferguson Charitable trust, three Ferguson scholarships have been established for African Students (African nationals and resident in Africa), who wish to undertake a taught masters course at SOAS.

Each Ferguson Scholarship is valued at £14,956 in total and lasts for one year. The scholarships can be used for fees and the remainder towards maintenance. The Ferguson scholarship is awarded on the basis of academic merit.

Students offered a Ferguson Scholarship must take it up in the academic year 2013/14 and it cannot be carried forward to a later year.

Applicants should:
  • Be nationals of and resident in an African country 
  • Hold an undergraduate degree at the first class level 
  • Have a confirmed, unconditional offer of admission to pursue one of the eligible programmes at SOAS by the scholarship application deadline. 
Applications must be received by 17:00 (GMT) on 22 March 2013. Late or incomplete applications will not be considered. Applicants applying for scholarships must also submit an application for admission well in advance. Please note that complete applications for admission can take up to 4 weeks to be considered by the Department, although this duration can vary depending on the time of year. You should be prepared to wait up to 6 weeks in busy periods.
