Through the generous support of Firoz and Najma Lalji and London School of Economics and Political Science, we are delighted to announce that a significant scholarship fund is available for bright African students applying to the MSc Development Management or the MSc in International Development and Humanitarian Emergencies (IDHE) starting in the academic year 2014/15.

Full scholarships will cover fees and living costs, but the value for each student will be assessed according to financial need. As well as studying for a prestigious London School of Economics MSc program, all Lalji PfAL Scholarship recipients will participate in additional workshops and seminars throughout the year.

Successful candidates will also gain membership of the growing PfAL network of African leaders.

In 2014/15, the scholarships are open to applicants from across sub-Saharan Africa. A minimum of 15 places will be reserved for applicants from Kenya, South Sudan and Uganda. Applicants who have not previously studied outside Africa are particularly encouraged to apply.
