School of Economics Scholarship for Excellence

The Scholarship for Excellence is worth £3,500 for one year for outstanding students of Economics, either Home/EU or Overseas.

The School of Economics is offering a number of scholarships for outstanding students on MSc Taught programmes for 2018/19.

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.


  • Scholarships will be awarded to the best qualified students on a competitive basis.

  • 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 Kent Graduate School Alumni Scholarship in addition if they are eligible).

  • The award of these scholarships is conditional on students accepting a University of Kent School of Economics offer for a place to study.
  • This scholarship is not applicable to 'Applied Economics and International Development', 'International Business and Economic Development' or the 'Economics Conversion' programmes.
