Warwick Postgraduate Sanctuary Scholarships

About the Sanctuary Scholarship

We are located on the outskirts of the city of Coventry which is recognised as a 'City of Sanctuary'. The 'City of Sanctuary' movement is committed to building a culture of hospitality and welcome, especially for those seeking sanctuary from war and persecution.

We provide a range of scholarships to enable refugees to progress to access university education. Since the launch of the scheme we have awarded 30 scholarships to postgraduate students.

We welcome applications from prospective students who are at risk as a result of the war in Ukraine and from any other country.
