Scholarships for Young Postgraduate Students in Islamicjerusalem Studies

Post  Admin on Mon Mar 01, 2010 2:52 am

These prestigious scholarship schemes are serious efforts on the part of ISRA to prepare a team of scholars in this new field of inquiry, and a great human investment to prepare an academic team of young scholars as specialists in Islamicjerusalem Studies.


Winners of the scholarship will undertake the taught full-time M.Litt. course in Islamicjerusalem Studies at Al-Maktoum Institute for Arabic and Islamic Studies in Dundee.
The scholarship will cover the full student tuition fee.
The scholarship will also include a fixed monthly sum to cover living expenses (£500).


The scholarship is only for one year.
This year, there are a number of full and partial scholarships for young postgraduate students wishing to study full-time for an M.Litt. in Islamicjerusalem Studies at Al-Maktoum Institute for Arabic and Islamic Studies- University of Aberdeen.

To apply for ISRA's scholarship the candidate must normally fit the following criteria:-

Candidates will normally be required to hold at least a second upper Honours degree (2.1) in an appropriate discipline.

The candidate must be able to demonstrate evidence of interest in Islamicjerusalem Studies. This can be shown by submitting three copies of any relevant academic works including published or unpublished papers, books, manuscripts, monographs, etc.
