Type of Funding
The Hatfield Lioness Scholarship at Durham University is set up as part of the celebration of 30 years of women students at Hatfield College, University of Durham. This is a 1-year scholarship for a female postgraduate student from a developing country where access to higher education for women is limited. The scholarship is for studies commencing October 2019.
Hatfield College aims to award the Lioness Scholarship to an individual who has the academic and personal qualities to enable them to complete and benefit from a postgraduate course, and who will also act as a positive ambassador for their home country in Durham, and put their enhanced knowledge and skills gained from the Masters programme and experience in Durham to good use for the benefit of their society when they return home.
One Hatfield Lioness Scholarship is available for AY 2019/2020. The scholarship will cover:
- Full payment of University tuition fees
- Stipend for living expenses – 12 monthly payments
- One return economy air ticket from the home country to the UK, and the cost of return travel between the UK airport and Durham City
- Fully funded, self-catered, mixed accommodation at Hatfield College

The Scholarship does not provide funding for dependants, nor for travel during the Scholarship.
