If you are pursuing a career in the development or humanitarian sectors and are a citizen of Uganda, Kenya or South Sudan, then you may want to consider applying for a Lalji PfAL Scholarship to undertake the MSc Development Management or the MSc International Development and Humanitarian Emergencies (IDHE) programmes at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
These scholarships are generously supported by Firoz & Najma Lalji and the Programme of African Leadership (PfAL) Foundation. The Lalji PfAL Scholarship fund is equivalent to 15 full scholarships. These will cover fees and living costs and the value of each student will be assessed according to financial need.
As well as studying for a prestigious London School of Economics and Polical Science MSc programme, all Lalji PfAL Scholarship recipients will participate in an additional programme of workshops, lectures and seminars focusing on African leadership and the challenges and opportunities facing the continent.
Successful candidates will also gain membership of the growing PfAL network of African leaders.
In 2013/14, the scholarships will be awarded to applicants from South Sudan, Kenya and Uganda, with a preference for those who have completed their previous degrees within Africa.
In order to be eligible for one of these awards, you must first apply for a place on the MSc Development Management or the MSc IDHE before Monday 13th May 2013. Only those candidates who are in receipt of an offer for one of the two programmes will then be considered for a Lalji PfAL Scholarship.
