UCL-African Leadership Academy Scholarship
Important Information for Students
University College London (UCL) and the African Leadership Academy (ALA) have agreed to collaborate in a scheme to enable students from the ALA to pursue full-time undergraduate studies at UCL.
Under the scheme, one full scholarship is available annually for ALA-nominated students who have accepted offers of places at UCL.
- be nationals of an African country (including nationals of Madagascar), attending the African Leadership Academy;
- be liable to pay tuition fees at the rate applicable to Overseas students, as assessed by UCL;
- hold a current offer of admission (either conditional or unconditional) to a full time undergraduate degree programme of study at UCL which they have firmly accepted. Accepting UCL as the insurance offer choice does not satisfy the conditions of the scholarship;
- lack the financial means necessary to pursue undergraduate degree studies at UCL.
The scholarship is awarded on the basis of academic merit and financial hardship, based on the aims of the scholarship.
Value: Benefits and Duration
Each scholarship consists of full tuition fees and a maintenance allowance for the duration of the student’s programme of study, as well as economy air travel to/from the UK at the beginning and end of the scholarship-holder’s degree programme. The maintenance allowance will normally rise each year in line with inflation but at the absolute discretion of UCL. (Please note that the scholarship is calculated to be sufficient for the applicant only.)
In addition, the scholarship includes an allowance (up to a specified maximum sum) to permit two members of the scholarship-holder’s family to attend their graduation ceremony. Annual renewal of the scholarship is subject to good academic progress by the student.
Application Deadline and Procedure
Each year, ALA may nominate up to ten candidates for consideration for the scholarship. Each nomination must be accompanied by a full scholarship application including all required documentation, a statement of support from ALA (including details of financial circumstances), and an essay, no longer than 500 words, on a topic determined by UCL. Application forms and supporting documentation are to be received by UCL by 28 February 2013.
Selection and Notification of Results
A selection panel at UCL will undertake the final selection from all candidates nominated. Notification of the successful candidate is expected in late April.
