  • Applicants who have firmly accepted an offer of a place by 16 September 2022 (for October 2022 start) or 06 January 2023 (for January 2023 start) and met the academic conditions of entry, will be considered for these scholarships.
  • Students must be starting their Masters at Essex in 2022-2023.

How to apply

If you meet all the eligibility criteria you will automatically be considered for this award. You don’t need to complete an application form.
