Hering Foundation Scholarships

Full funding for MSc International Human Rights Law

Six full scholarships have been made available for applicants to this course through the generosity of John and Alexandra Hering. Priority will be given to students ordinarily resident in low income or lower middle income countries (as defined by the World Bank) and who are unable to afford to study the programme without the scholarship. The first two Hering Foundation Scholars in International Human Rights Law start their degrees in September 2024, with the remaining four joining in the 2025/26 and 2026/27 academic years. 

The scholarship covers course fees and a study support grant to put towards the costs of attending the summer residences. The award covers the two years of the course.
