2011 The Munkman Scholarship at School of Law, University of Edinburgh, UK

In memory of Athene Munkman, the School of Law is pleased to offer the Munkman Scholarship.  This award will provide £1,000 towards the cost of tuition fees for one student studying on the LLM in International Law.  Please submit only a single application form but state clearly on the form itself which awards you wish to be considered for. The School of Law is fortunate enough to be able to, each year, make a number of awards for postgraduate study, both at LLM, MSc and PhD level. It is a condition of eligibility that any applicant for an award has also submitted a complete application for admission to the relevant postgraduate programme in the School by that same closing date. In considering applications, the School will have regard in the first instance to this form but may also consider any information, including references, submitted as part of the application for admission. However, to assist the Selection Panel, the form must be completed in full, even where this duplicates information submitted as part of your application. You may copy and paste material from your application as appropriate.

Scholarship Application Deadline: 31 May 2011.
