2021 Allan and Nesta Ferguson Scholarships at SOAS University of London for Africans

Deadline: April 30, 2021.

Thanks to the generosity of the Allan and Nesta Ferguson Charitable trust, three Allan and Nesta Ferguson Scholarships have been established for African Students (African nationals and resident in Africa), who wish to undertake a taught masters course at SOAS.

Students offered an Allan and Nesta Ferguson Scholarship must take it up in the academic year 2021/22 and it cannot be carried forward to a later year.   



Applicants should:

  • Be nationals of and resident in an African country 
  • Hold an undergraduate degree at the first class level 
  • Hold an offer of admission to pursue one of the eligible programmes by the scholarship deadline.  Priority may be given to applicants with unconditional offers.  If your offer is conditional, please ensure you meet the conditions as soon as possible.
  • Applicants must meet the English language condition of their offer of admission to study at SOAS as soon as possible but no later than 1 June 2021.  If your offer is conditional on English, please arrange your English test and ensure you meet the English requirement as soon as possible.
  • Please note that most scholarships do not cover funding or even allow for Pre-sessionals. Please check the wording of your scholarship offer carefully to see if you are eligible for a Pre-sessional course or whether you need to achieve SOAS direct entry scores by the deadline specified in your scholarship terms and conditions.
