- OSI/FCO Chevening/University of Oxford Scholarships in International Human Rights Law 2005/2006
The scholarships provide fully funded opportunities for part-time postgraduate study in international human rights law at the University of Oxford. The course of study is taught over a period two years and consists of two six-week residential sessions in Oxford and three periods of distance-taught instruction using the Internet and email. The scholarships are intended for human rights professionals from Bosnia Herzegovina and Serbia who would be unable, without assistance, to take up their place on this course. Subject to satisfactory progress, the scholarships lead to the award of a Master of Studies in international human rights law.
Each scholarship provides course and college fees at the University of Oxford over two years, a stipend to cover living costs (while students are in Oxford only) and return air travel from the scholar's home country for each residential session.
The application deadline for the 2005/2006 academic year is Friday, March 4, 2005.
