Felix Foundation is offering fully funded International scholarship at the School of Oriental & African Studies, SOAS, University of London in the forthcoming 2018 academic session.
The primary objective of the Felix Scholarship is to stimulate the Felix scholars by exposing them to academic study, cultures, experiences and friendships that they would not otherwise have had the chance to sample. It is hoped that this in turn will endow them with skills and visions, enabling them, when returning to their country of origin, to contribute to the culture and welfare of their home communities.
Felix scholarships are offered at three universities – the University of Oxford, the University of Reading and the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), part of the University of London. The Scholarships are awarded on the basis of outstanding academic merit and financial need.
Candidates for the Felix Scholarships at Reading and SOAS must complete application forms. The completed application form (together with only the supporting material specifically requested in the application form) should be returned to the address given below for the academic institution in which the candidate wishes to study.
