There is now a call for applications for the McDonald Fellowships. In the following paragraphs, we will go through the specifics of this scholarship program, including its advantages and the application procedure in sequential order.
Full financial support is provided to overseas students who are selected for the McDonald Fellowships 2022-2023. Both master’s degree and doctoral degree students are eligible for these awards. The fellowship consists of a grant to cover travel and living expenses totaling about £30,000 GBP per year for a period of two years, as well as an additional gift to the host institution of £2,000 GBP each year.
