About Masters Scholarship At University of Sussex

Launched in Autumn 2008, this scholarship is funded thanks to the support of economics alumni and the Department of Economics.

Economics research at Sussex focuses on policy-oriented research in development, international economics and labour economics. It is strongly linked to the needs of policy-making bodies, such as the European Commission, the World Bank, WTO, DFID, UNDP and UNICEF as well as the international academic community. We concentrate on three heavily overlapping clusters of work: international trade, development economics and labour economics. The department has an impressive track record in attracting research income and PhD students.

The focus on selected African countries is motivated by a dearth in existing funding opportunities for well qualified African students. Our Masters programmes in both economics and development economics also benefit from having students from African backgrounds who bring important personal experiences from developing countries that can be shared with other students from more developed countries.
