The Sadako Ogata Scholarship, University of London, UK

The Sadako Ogata scholarship is for financially disadvantaged students who wish to begin our MA Refugee Protection and Forced Migration Studies in March.

This fee-waiver award (worth £8,220) celebrates the career of Sadako Ogata, who made inspiring contributions to vulnerable and displaced civilians as the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

Are you eligible?
Applicants for the Sadako Ogata scholarship must satisfy all of the following:

  • You have an offer to study the MA Refugee Protection and Forced Migration Studies for the March intake.
  • You are unable to accept it without financial support.
  • You are a national of (and reside in) a low/lower-middle-income country.
  • You are able to demonstrate outstanding academic merit or potential (particularly by your achievements).

(Current University of London students or former applicants for this or the Guy S. Goodwin-Gill scholarships are not eligible to apply.)

How to apply
This is a separate application process to the MA programme.

We will need to know about your relevant past achievements, professional positions held, and your financial situation. You must also provide a personal statement.

All applications will be reviewed against the award criteria (though we cannot provide individual feedback).

If you apply for the scholarship, please await the outcome before you complete registration for the MA programme.

Key dates and deadlines
The Sadako Ogata scholarship is awarded for the March intake of the MA. The key dates are as follows:

  • Deadline for scholarship applications: 15 January 2019
  • Notification of outcome to all applicants: 30 January 2019
  • Deadline for MA registration: 28 February 2019
  • MA programme begins: mid-late March 2019

We also recommend that applications for the MA programme reach us by 15 December 2018.

Applications made after this date may not be processed in time for the offer you need to apply for the scholarship.

Scholarships cannot be carried over to a later intake or a future year.

What is the award worth?
The Sadako Ogata Scholarship covers the whole course fee (currently worth a total of £8,220).

You must still cover certain additional costs, including those not directly payable to us (such as examination centre fees), as well as any resubmission fees, transfer costs, or any other fees.

If you accept an award, you must still be able to cover such costs via other means.

Duties of scholarship holders
We ask each scholarship holder to write a short report at the end of each study year outlining the impact of your study and research. We also expect you to act in accordance with the standards expected of University of London students.

We reserve the right to withdraw your scholarship if you do not meet these terms.
