About the Scholarship
Launched in the fall of 2008, this scholarship is funded through the support of graduates in Economics and the Department of Economics. Economic research in Sussex focuses on policy-oriented research in development, international economics, and labor economics.
It is closely linked to the needs of government bodies, such as the European Commission, the World Bank, the WTO, DFID, UNDP, and UNICEF, as well as the international academic community.
We focus on three highly overlapping working groups: international trade, development economics, and labor economics. The department has an impressive track record to attract research and doctoral students.
The focus in some African countries is motivated by the lack of funding opportunities for highly qualified African students.
Our master’s programs in economics and development economics also benefit from the presence of African-born students who bring important personal experiences from developing countries that can be shared with other students from more developed countries.
