The Hillary Rodham Clinton Global Challenges Programme, supported by Sky, aims to facilitate international cooperation to address urgent national and transnational challenges. In partnership with Sky, this graduate scholarship initiative will develop the next generation of outstanding, forward-looking, real-world focused leaders in legal scholarship, activism and practice.
For our second cohort, who commenced their studies in January 2021, we selected five scholars who are studying the following topics:
- education, equality and climate change;
- human rights investigations;
- countering disinformation online;
- starvation in armed conflict, and
- special educational needs provision.
If you are accepted onto this master’s programme, you will receive a scholarship which covers the full tuition fee as well as a stipend of c.£15,000 to contribute towards your living costs.
Scholars will demonstrate academic excellence alongside a creative, action-oriented approach to collaboration and partnership working. They will follow a one-year (12 months) Master of Arts degree in Global Challenges: Law, Policy and Practice. The degree programme is based on experiential learning, and includes a research project placement. Scholars will also benefit from a range of additional activities, including mentorship, guest speakers, visits and media training.
Given the bespoke nature of the programme, and the opportunities available, please note that we welcome applications from candidates who already hold Master’s level qualifications, as well as those who hold a good undergraduate degree.
We hope to announce details of the application process for the 2022 programme soon. In the meantime, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
