The Thouron award, for British university graduates, which offers full funding, for up to two years, to study for a graduate degree programme at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia (Penn).
Established in 1960, it is one of the most generous exchange fellowships in the world. Not only does it provide funding for tuition fees but also a stipend that allows students to travel and immerse themselves in the life of their host country. Typically between 6-10 awards are offered to British Students each year. You can read more about the award on the website: http://www.thouronaward.org/ .
Applications are invited by 5pm on 3 November 2014 from UK university graduates, including forthcoming summer 2015 graduates, who are British citizens normally resident in the UK. Come along and learn more at a Thouron Award presentation on:
30 September, 6pm, River Room, Strand Campus
All welcome: ideal for those who are coming to the end of a Master’s and are considering a postgraduate programme (Master’s or PhD) in the USA.
This scheme is open to students at all UK universities so if you have friends at other institutions who may be interested in the scholarship, let them know.
