The Consular Corps in Edinburgh and Leith and University of Edinburgh Scholarship

An annual scholarship, jointly awarded by the University of Edinburgh and the Consular Corps in Edinburgh and Leith, has been established.


The scholarship will be awarded to current students of the University of Edinburgh who have produced a notable piece of coursework or research which looks at the area of international relations. Students studying within the fields of cultures, education, law, international relations, history, politics, and economics may be considered.

The Consular Corps in Edinburgh and Leith represent some sixty international delegations and organisations and includes 54 nations. The Corps fosters goodwill, understanding and cooperation between their nations and Scottish institutions. The Consular Corps include diplomats, honorary consuls and directors of international organisations and cultural institutions.

The purpose of this scholarship is to recognise the work of a postgraduate student at the University in terms of their contribution to research in this important area.

The value of the award is £1,000.


The closing date of Friday 12th May 2017 has now passed.
