Open Society Foundations/Staffordshire University Scholarships

Konkurs je istekao!

The Open Society Foundations and Staffordshire University Faculty of Business & Law jointly invite applications from university graduates with outstanding academic qualifications for scholarships for the MSc in the Economics for Business Analysis program at Staffordshire. The aim of this program is to assist capacity building in the region by speeding up the training of professional economists needed in the transition to a democratic market economy. The program enables young university graduates to pursue postgraduate studies in economics in the United Kingdom with a view to returning to and working in the region after completing the program.

The program consists of two parts: an intensive MSc preliminary course (mid-July 2011 to mid-September 2011) followed by the main master's program (September 2011 to August 2012). The preliminary course consists of four intensive modules (macroeconomics, microeconomics, statistics, and English for Academic Purposes) to ensure that all candidates have the necessary experience and knowledge of the subject. The second part, the main MSc course, consists of two semesters of coursework (with four modules in each semester) and a dissertation written under the supervision of a member of staff.

For further details of the program, see the MSc program website at

Scholarships are granted for a period of up to 13 months, subject to satisfactory progress of the candidates.


Applicants must:

- be nationals of and normally resident in one of the following countries/regions:
  Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia, or Montenegro during the academic year in which they
  apply for the award.  Applicants who are temporarily out of the country for a total period of less than
  three consecutive months may be treated as being resident;
- have obtained a first degree (the equivalent of a BA degree) with good grades in economics or
  related disciplines by the end of April 2011;
- display intellectual ability and leadership potential;
- be able to demonstrate their knowledge of English by passing a TOEFL (ITP) or IELTS test
  at an appropriate level by the time interviews are held for these scholarships,

Preference will be given to applicants who:

- are likely to make a significant contribution to the economic development of their country;
- have not previously studied outside their home country.

Please note that if you have applied, or are applying, for other grants, fellowships or scholarships with the Open Society Foundations you should alert us to this in your application.  While you may apply for more than one program simultaneously, you can be awarded only one Open Society Foundations scholarship or grant for a given period.
