Subject: UCL Graduate Support Scheme - MSc in Anthropology, Environment and Development

We are pleased to announce that the UCL Graduate Support Scheme is offering 10 bursaries in Anthropology for the academic year 2014-15. (http://www.ucl.ac.uk/anthropology/anthropology-news/ucl-graduate-support-scheme-summers-workshop)

Two bursaries are available for the MSc in Anthropology, Environment and Development (http://www.ucl.ac.uk/aed), which applies both biological and social anthropological approaches to the study of environment and development. Key areas of investigation include: the implications of changing environments for production systems and human welfare; the sustainable use of natural resources in developing countries; the environmental and welfare impacts of changing patterns of resource use with development.

UK/EU students are eligible to apply for the bursaries, which are awarded on the basis of financial need and include a full fee waiver and £10,000 living allowance. There is also the opportunity to apply for childcare assistance. Application deadline 30th June. See http://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-students/graduate/fees-funding/support-scheme for further details.
