· Stipend ~£20k/year · Fees covered for low- & lower-middle income country nationals and UK nationals

· Deadline Sun 19th Feb

A Master’s degree equivalent to UK merit or distinction is essential, ideally in economics but alternatively in public health, engineering, development studies, or any relevant subject. An interest in both quantitative and qualitative aspects of social science is essential, with aptitude for statistical analysis strongly desirable.

The terms of the scheme make it very difficult for people from high-income countries other than the UK or from UMICs (e.g. China, South Africa). This is because you’re not allowed to pay the overseas fee difference from personal funds, only other scholarships.
