All of the above qualified statuses must have been granted from a date normally within 3 years from the start date of any Postgraduate programme for which you are applying. You will also need to have evidence of (where applicable) English language proficiency (IELTS or otherwise).

Further Information

The University of Dundee Humanitarian Scholarship is open to all international (non EU citizens) applicants who can verify their refugee status or provide other suitable evidence as to why they should be a candidate for this scholarship on humanitarian grounds. Any applicant for Taught Postgraduate courses who can verify their refugee status will be invited to apply for a Humanitarian Scholarship.

Five Humanitarian Scholarships are offered each year for a one year Postgraduate taught programme, within any University of Dundee academic school. 

Humanitarian Scholarships are offered on the following basis

  • Provision of a living costs stipend £9135 per annum
  • University fee waiver of up to £15,950
  • Provision of university accommodation (Single person accommodation only)

Payment of Scholarship Living Cost Stipend

  • Living cost stipend is paid on a monthly basis via the University’s Student Funding Unit  into the British bank account of the students in receipt of the University of Dundee Humanitarian Scholarship.
  • As general rule only single person accommodation is offered within this scholarship, however the panel would be prepared to consider applications for students with families on a case by case basis. No university accommodation is available for families – this would need to be arranged privately and an increase in the living cost stipend made accordingly.

This provision includes CARA, RUSS and HESPAL scholars who are eligible to apply for the University of Dundee Humanitarian Scholarships, and would be included for selection by the panel.

Candidates may also put themselves forwards for this scholarship with the assistance of the following organisations:

Verification for admissions criteria can be documented with the assistance of these external agencies. Consideration to the individual scholar’s likely impact on their home community is used to contextualise the application.

Standard visa requirements also have to be met for any International Student (Non EU Citizen) applying to study at University of Dundee via the Humanitarian Scholarship Fund.
