School of Economics Alumni Scholarship

The Economics Alumni Scholarship is worth £1,500 for one year.

The School of Economics is offering a number of scholarships for outstanding students on MSc Taught programmes for 2019/20.

All scholarships take the form of a School payment towards tuition fees, and will be paid once the recipient is fully registered at the University of Kent.

You should be aware that this scholarship does not cover the full cost of studying at Kent, and that you will need to have additional sources of funding in order to cover your tuition fees and/or accommodation, travel and living expenses.


  • Applicants must be undergraduates currently in Kent's School of Economics who are due to graduate in July 2019 and continue with an MSc starting in September 2019.

  • To be eligible, you must achieve a final overall mark of 65% or above in your undergraduate degree.

  • Students may be considered for more than one scholarship, but they will not be awarded more than one (Kent graduates may however be awarded the Graduate School Scholarship in addition, if they are eligible).

  • The award of this scholarship is conditional upon students accepting a University of Kent School of Economics offer of a place to study.

  • This scholarship is not available for the MSc Conversion programme.
