Centenary Scholarships for Overseas Students

Applications for the IOE Centenary Scholarships have now closed. This year, thanks to the generous support of our donors and staff, we were able to offer three Masters scholarships.

For these awards, the IOE encourages applications from those who plan to work either in their home country, or another, to improve the circumstances of disadvantaged, excluded or underachieving citizens. We are particularly interested in hearing how a proposed programme of study would enable applicants to address these issues, and are keen to receive applications from potential students who would not be able to undertake this level of study without the scholarship.

The scholarships cover the cost of tuition fees and provide a bursary for living expenses for one academic year.
