Students in the Turks and Caicos Islands interested in furthering their education in environmental studies have a chance to win a scholarship to study at the University of Reading in the U.K.
The Joint Nature Conservation Committee is offering a scholarship to one student from one of the Overseas Territories to study an environmental Master of Science in one of a dozen fields, from atmosphere, ocean and climate to wildlife management and conservation.
“This scholarship is part of the Overseas Territories Training and Research Programme which will contribute to capacity building within the OTs,” the United Kingdom Overseas Territories Association (UKOTA) said. “As part of the scholarship, the student’s tuition fees will be paid, travel to and from the territory and monthly allowances to cover accommodation and living expenses.”
UKOTA is looking for a dedicated student who has a strong commitment to or is keen to develop a career in nature conservation in the Overseas Territories.
Scholarship applicants must be at least 21, have Overseas Territories Citizenship or the right to live and work in an Overseas Territory and satisfy the university’s course entry requirements. Students with exceptional experience, including mature students with experience of working within the environmental/conservation sector in one of the Overseas Territories, will be considered favourably.
