The Florence Congleton Scholarship Award – University of Birmingham

 

 

The Florence Congleton Scholarship award was set up in 1986 to enable a selected candidate to study full time in Education at the School of Education at the University of Birmingham. It was created to support an African woman studying in the School of Education at the University of Birmingham.

The School of Education is an Associated School of UNESCO, and the Florence Congleton Scholarship is now assigned to a female research student from Africa who wishes to pursue study in one of the UNESCO themes of education for peace, democracy, human rights and sustainable development (or related issues).

The scholarship pays fees for one year of full time study, which would lead to MA/MEd. A contribution towards accommodation is also included. Any student wishing to continue to the PhD programme would have to find the remaining fees and costs themselves.
