The University of Dundee's Centre for Energy, Petroleum and Mineral Law and Policy (CEPMLP) is offering great scholarship opportunities from two sponsors: Chevening/Rio Tinto and Anglo American. The Chevening/Rio Tinto and Anglo American scholarships are offered to postgraduate students, including those accepted to the LLM on the Mineral Law and Policy program.
Chevening/Rio Tinto Scholarships
Currently, Rio Tinto is funding scholars from different countries, including Zambia, Serbia, Peru, Mongolia, Indonesia, India, China, Brazil, Bostwana, Laos, Mongolia, Namibia, Kazakhstan and Chile.
To be eligible to these funding opportunities, applicants to the LLM program must first receive an offer from the University of Dundee. It should be noted that applications to the CEPMLP Chevening/Rio Tinto scholarships will only be accepted until 7 November 2017. This gives interested students only a week to submit their applications. To submit, the following should be readily available:
- Valid passport/national ID card
- University transcripts and degree certificates (undergraduate/postgraduate)
- English proficiency test results (optional)
- LLM Program Offer
Interested LLM students may submit just the initial application on or before 7 November 2017. Those who will be selected conditionally will need to submit their English language requirements and the offer of acceptance from the University of Dundee by 12 July 2018 to be considered for final selection.
Anglo American Scholarships
Applicants to the CEPMLP Anglo American scholarships have until 17 November 2017 to apply. This funding is provided by Anglo American to recognize the significance of contributing to the development of sustainable mineral resources. Two full postgraduate scholarships will be awarded to deserving students.
The offer is for students who will be accepted on the LLM in Mineral Law and Policy program that will start January 2018. The scholarship covers full payment of the tuition fees, 12 monthly living expense stipends for each student selected, a thesis/internship allowance and an arrival allowance. To be eligible, the student must be a national of any of the following countries: Chile, Colombia, Bostwana, South Africa, Zambia, Peru, Brazil, Zimbabwe or Namibia.
