Swansea University Scholarships

Oxford-Indira Gandhi Graduate Scholarships

Up to two full scholarships are available for applicants who are either ordinarily resident in India or have previously studied at an Indian higher education institution. You must be applying for one of the eligible master?s courses listed below or for a DPhil course with proposed research in the eligible areas of study.

The following master?s courses are eligible: MSc in Biodiversity, Conservation and Management; MSc in Contemporary India; Master of Public Policy; MSc in Water Science, Policy and Management; MSc in Environmental Change and Management; MPhil in Development Studies; and Bachelor of Civil Law (BCL).

For DPhil courses, your proposed area of study must be relevant to the Oxford India Centre for Sustainable Development's agenda of interdisciplinary research on sustainable development and India. The Centre focuses on a series of impact themes: food and water security; energy; environmental conservation; medical research and healthcare; law; governance; and gender (e.g. the empowerment of women). Independent proposals on any India-related theme which fits within the overall aims of the Centre will be considered.

The scholarship covers course fees, college fees and a grant for living costs for full-time students of at least ?14,057 (students on part-time courses will receive a study support grant instead). Awards are made for the full duration of your fee liability for the agreed course. Somerville College and the University have established these scholarships with the generous support of the Government of India.

Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of academic merit, relevance of studies to the Centre?s interdisciplinary aims, understanding of the development challenges faced by India, and leadership and entrepreneurial potential.

The scholarship is only tenable at Somerville College. All eligible applicants will be considered for this scholarship, regardless of which college (if any) you state as your preference on the graduate application form. However, successful applicants will be transferred to Somerville College in order to take up the scholarship.

There is no separate application process for this scholarship: to be considered, submit your application for graduate study by the relevant January deadline (8 or 22 January 2016, depending on your course). Selection is expected to take place in May 2016. Please see the Standard scholarship selection terms for more information about the application and selection process.
