Sadako Ogata Scholarship is offered by University of London, meant for low income countries and who otherwise might not be able to gain access to the MA in Refugee Protection and Forced Migration Studies due to financial circumstances. This scholarship is meant for students beginning their studies in March in the year 2017.
The Sadako Ogata scholarship covers the ‘whole fee’ for the programme, comprising two Core Module fees, four Elective Module fees, and the two Dissertation modules fees. For the 2016-17 year, this is equivalent to fees of £7,720 over the lifetime of the award.
The scholarship does not cover examination centre costs and any other costs not directly payable to the University (such as the purchase of additional materials or electronic equipment), resubmission fees, payment of further elective modules if the student decides to transfer, or any other fees not covered above. Applicants must ensure they can cover such costs from other financial sources.
