(JUBA) -Keen to encourage applications from women and individuals from other particularly disadvantaged groups, the Windle Trust International has extended scholarships to South Sudanese students. Applications for 2019 end on September 30.

This includes those who are resident in the refugee camps and settlements, those who have lost close family members to war or conflict, as well as those who are particularly vulnerable such as people with disabilities and those who have themselves been victims of violence.

Windle Trust International’s work is the legacy of Dr Hugh Austin Windle Pilkington, who dedicated his life to helping refugees access further education. 

According to the scholarship guidelines, eligible applicants are welcomed from all religious backgrounds and ethnic groups. A scholarship, in most cases, will cover full tuition fees, maintenance stipends, visa cost and return airfares. 

There is no application fee.

Priority is given to applicants of particular merit taking into account academic ability, need, development impact, leadership potential and personal qualities.

Prospective students can apply using the online guidelines available on the Windle Trust scholarships website.

All applications are done online.
