The Jusoor and LSE Scholars at Risk Scholarship

The Jusoor and LSE Scholars at Risk Scholarship offers financial support for a student from Syria for a master’s degree at London School of Economics (LSE). This scholarship is jointly funded by Jusoor and LSE Scholars at Risk, an LSE-wide initiative co-ordinated from the Centre for the Study of Human Rights.

One scholarship will be offered for the 2016/17 academic session. The scholarship has a value of £40,000, which will cover the full tuition fees with the remainder to support living expenses in London.
All full-time master’s programs at LSE are valid for this scholarship.

The scholars will also be affiliated to the Middle East Centre at LSE for the duration of their degree and will be invited to play an active part in the intellectual life of the Centre.
