The Lancaster Environment Centre has been recognised by the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission with an award of a Commonwealth Shared Scholarship for the academic year 2013/14.

This scholarship is available on our MSc Contamination, Risk Assessment and Remediation programme and applications are restricted to nationals of West African (Commonwealth) countries only. For further details on eligibility, finance available and conditions of the award, see http://cscuk.dfid.gov.uk/apply/shared-scholarships/.

This scholarship will cover all costs associated with studying at Lancaster, including fees, return air ticket and book allowance, together with a monthly stipend to cover living expenses. Competition for this scholarship is likely to be extremely strong and it will be awarded by LEC, in consultation with the Commonwealth Scholarships Commission, to the most outstanding West African candidate for the MSc Contamination, Risk Assessment and Remediation programme, who meets all our entry requirements for the programme.

To be considered for the Commonwealth Shared Scholarship you must make your application via the University's online application system no later than 28 February 2013. You must indicate on your application that you are applying for a specific award and you must also include with your application a separate request letter, clearly explaining why you should be considered for the award. Applications received after this date will not be considered.
