Postgraduate Scholarships

Hatfield Lioness Scholarship

The aim of the Hatfield Lioness Scholarship is to enable a female student from a developing country where access to tertiary education is limited to undertake postgraduate study at Durham University.

The scholarship will be awarded to an individual who has the academic and personal qualities to enable them to complete and benefit from a taught master’s course, and who will act as a positive ambassador for their home country in Durham. Lioness Scholars are also expected to put their enhanced knowledge and skills gained from the master’s programme, as well as their experience of being in Durham, to good use for the benefit of their society when they return home.

The scholarship funds:

  • University tuition fees
  • Stipend for living expenses
  • Return travel from your home country to Durham University
  • Accommodation in Hatfield College
  • A ‘settling in allowance’
  • Cost of a UK visa and UK Health Surcharge.
