The scholarship will cover your home UK postgraduate taught programme tuition fees.
Scholarships are awarded to UK individuals with career aspirations in media and journalism, technology, sustainability and the environment, law, policy (excluding health policy) and creative content.
Students in receipt of one of the Aziz Scholarships are not eligible for other University of Liverpool bursaries or scholarships.
The Aziz Foundation was established in 2015 by the Aziz family and is inspired by the values and teaching of Islam to support the most disadvantaged communities in Britain.
Since 2019 the Foundation has focused on supporting Muslim individuals by offering master's scholarships that allow recipients to progress in their careers and make meaningful contributions to their industry, community and society as a whole.
Successful applicants will receive a full scholarship for their tuition fees and access to a programme of training days and career mentors via Aziz Scholarships Plus and the Aziz Scholars Association.
You are required to meet all of the following requirements:
- Be eligible for Home fees status at the University
- Be active within a Muslim community and demonstrate intimate knowledge of issues affecting British Muslim communities
- Be able to demonstrate long-term commitment to community/societal development within Britain
- Demonstrate that you require financial assistance in order to undertake a master's degree.
You are not eligible to apply if:
- Your course is funded by the undergraduate funding system or the NHS (contact us if you are unsure)
- You are completing an integrated masters, such as the MArch.
Please note that students intending to take a Postgraduate Loan are classed as self-sponsored and are eligible to apply.
How to apply
Applications are submitted online, via a portal on the Aziz Foundation website. You will need to demonstrate active engagement in British Muslim communities, a long-term commitment to community/societal development, and a need for financial assistance in order to undertake a master's degree.
