UCL is currently publicising a graduate support scheme to underrepresented groups, in particular to black and minority ethnic students, but also to lower income groups. The scheme offers 93 fully funded Masters places for 14/15 academic year, plus a £10k bursary. There is also childcare support and mentoring available as part of the scheme. Full details of the scheme can be found here:
www.ucl.ac.uk/graduatesupportscheme. This could be a fantastic opportunity for students wanting to pursue postgraduate education but who will struggle to afford it.
Do please circulate this information to your black and minority ethnic student and staff networks.
