Ukraine Conflict Distance Learning Sanctuary Scholarship

What is it?

This Sanctuary Scholarship offers an opportunity to study at the University of Leicester via distance learning for students whose access to higher education has been significantly restricted due to the conflict in Ukraine.

The scholarship provides a full fee waiver.

Applicants can be based anywhere in the world and hold any nationality but must be able to demonstrate that the conflict in Ukraine has created a barrier to higher education for them. Applicants must have regular access to the internet. We welcome applications from those who were displaced from Ukraine but did not qualify for the Homes for Ukraine scheme in the UK. We will determine eligibility on a case-by-case basis.
