Fancy studying in the USA? Here are two fantastic opportunities:
The Kennedy Scholarship
An academic award for study at two of the world’s finest universities – Harvard and MIT. It can be used to fund a wide variety of programmes at MIT and across all the graduate schools within Harvard. It can also fund a Special Studentship for those wanting a general programme of non-degree study.
Applications are now open for academic year 2015-16, with a deadline of 29th October 2014.
Those applying for awards must be all of the following:
- British citizens at the time of application;
- ordinarily resident in the UK;
- wholly or mainly educated in the UK.
Frank Knox Fellowships
Frank Knox Fellowships were established in 1945 to enable students from the UK, along with those from Australia, Canada and New Zealand, to undertake graduate study at Harvard University.
A Knox Fellowship pays full Harvard tuition and mandatory health insurance fees and provides a stipend sufficient to cover the living expenses of a single Fellow for a 10-month academic year. Knox Fellowship funding is guaranteed for up to two years for students in degree programmes requiring more than one year of study.
Special regard will be given to personal qualities in the awarding of Frank Knox Fellowships:
“Candidates will be selected on the basis of future promise of leadership. Strength of character, keen mind, a balanced judgment, and devotion to the democractic ideal will be the qualities borne in mind in making the final selection.”
