Edinburgh Scotland - Here Are The Details For Julius Nyerere Master's Scholarships - Deadline April 1, 2010.

If This Is NOT For You, Please Send To Someone Else You Know Who May Benefit From This Opportunity And Let Him/Her Have The Information And Allow Him/Her To Make Up His/Her Own Mind. Do Not Simply Delete or Hide It In Your Own Mailbox. Just Take Two Minutes To Think And You Will Definitely Find Someone Who Potentially Qualifies And May Want To Apply.

Please apply if this interests you otherwise send this to any Tanzanian who is currently ordinarily residing in Tanzania and wants to apply. (Note that there are other scholarships from the University for other African candidates from other countries).

Simple 7 Useful Points For Those Who Are Seriously Interested in Getting Their Scholarship at the University of Edinburgh, in Scotland:

  1. Apply directly to the University of Edinburgh for Admission in Your Chosen School, Your Chosen Course. You MUST get admission into your chosen course for you to be considered for the scholarship.
  2. Apply for the scholarship directly via online as explained here - http://www.scholarships.ed.ac.uk/postgraduate/internat/nyerere.htm. Completed application forms must be returned to the Scholarships and Student Finance Office no later than 1 April 2010.
  3. Do not waste time sending queries to the University or TzECA members. All the required information is on this email and the link given.
  4. Follow the instructions to the last word, and do not make any assumptions. Read all the links in this email and pay attention to all the details.
  5. Apply more than one scholarship using the check boxes BUT ensure you have read the eligibility criteria for each award.
  6. For someone who has never applied before to such scholarships, don't shy from getting a trusted and perhaps senior to you as second pair of eyes to go through your application, spell check, etc, just make it the best quality you can, then you can leave the rest to the process, but you MUST do your part as perfect as you can. Don't think of competition as something to discourage you, just think that your application is the best ever and BELIEVE that is the case and deliver the Quality to the Best Standard Ever
  7. Don't wait to the last minute, give it plenty of time and start working on it NOW.
Feedback from last round of applications : (remember two Tanzanians were awarded their scholarships and now attending their courses)

Applications for the 2010-2011 Julius Nyerere Master's Scholarship:

Last year there were cases of Tanzanian students applying for scholarships other than the Julius Nyerere Master's Scholarship (such as the Southern African scholarship: http://www.scholarships.ed.ac.uk/postgraduate/internat/sas.htm) but who were also eligible for the Julius Nyerere Master's Scholarship and, unfortunately, didn't apply for it. I am reliably informed that as of September applications can be made on a generic scholarship application form that will simplify the process by offering tick boxes for each of the different scholarships that applicants would like to apply for. This will help ensure that those Tanzanians who are eligible for the Julius Nyerere Master's Scholarship consider applying for it, and can do so more easily.

Another improvement for Tanzanians is that the Julius Nyerere Master's Scholarship will also be advertised through the British Council on their website and in the Dar es Salaam office. 

University of Edinburgh also now have a Desmond Tutu Scholarship for anybody who wants to study an M.Sc. on 'emancipatory' topics such as Politics or Religion. I don't know much about this Scholarship at the moment but I hope that more details will be available on the UoE Scholarships website soon.

Please note that TzECA (http://www.tzeca.org.uk) does NOT offer any scholarship - so no need to send anything to anyone in TzECA. All applications must be directed to the University of Edinburgh as per online instructions.

If This Is NOT For You, Please Send To Someone Else You Know Who May Benefit From This Opportunity And Let Him/Her Have The Information And Allow Him/Her To Make Up His/Her Own Mind. Do Not Simply Delete or Hide It In Your Own Mailbox. Just Take Two Minutes To Think And You Will Definitely Find Someone Who Potentially Qualifies And May Want To Apply.

All the best and happy new year 2010.

Apollo Temu
