A new postgraduate scholarship is being introduced to support a forced migrant student to take a Masters course at the University of Sussex.
As with the existing Article 26 scholarships, it will offer a full overseas tuition fee waiver plus £11,500 maintenance per year of study.
Adam Tickell, Vice-Chancellor, said: “I am very pleased to be offering this postgraduate scholarship in 2021. My thanks go to colleagues involved in championing this idea and the undergraduate students who have already greatly contributed to our community through the Article 26 scheme.
“The University of Sussex will continue to be a place that welcomes and supports those who flee persecution.”
Sussex is one of only 15 universities in the UK to be recognised as a University of Sanctuary, which is a status awarded by the nationwide Cities of Sanctuary project. It celebrates the good practice of UK universities welcoming sanctuary seekers into their communities and fostering a culture of welcome and inclusion for all.
