How to apply

Application procedure

There is a two stage process to apply for the scholarship:

Stage one: Candidates may only apply for the scholarship once they have accepted a place on the MA in Gender, Violence and Conflict. Candidates should therefore apply for a place on the MA at least two weeks before the scholarship deadline of 31 May in order to allow sufficient time for the MA application to be processed. Apply here

Stage two: Once a place has been accepted on the MA in Gender, Violence and Conflict candidates should complete and return the attached scholarship application form by 31 May.

Assessment criteria

Applications will be ranked and assessed on the criteria below and preference will be given to those candidates transitioning directly from an undergraduate degree:

  • Academic performance and/or (if applicable) relevant professional experience
  • Personal circumstances
  • Career aspirations related to the field of study


The scholarship is available to funded and self-financing candidates. However, the successful candidate cannot be in receipt of this award and any other University of Sussex funded scholarship.
