Bournemouth University has announced a new partnership with the Aziz Foundation that will offer scholarships to students from British Muslim communities.
The scholarships are designed to increase opportunities for British muslims to study postgraduate courses and will cover the full tuition fees for those without the financial means to complete Masters degrees in the UK.
For the next academic year, we have committed to welcoming up to three scholars and we hope to increase that number in future years.
Ibrahim Mohammed, Communications Manager at the Aziz Foundation, said: "It is with great excitement that we declare Bournemouth University as one of our Preferred Partners, as they have shown a dedicated effort to expanding access to postgraduate education and diminishing educational disparities for underrepresented students. Our collaboration with the university will allow us to develop initiatives that promote inclusivity and expand opportunities for British muslim communities at the postgraduate taught level."
Claire House-Norman, Director of Fundraising & Alumni Relations at Bournemouth University, added: “Bournemouth University is delighted to enter into a partnership with the Aziz Foundation and be able to offer several postgraduate scholarships for British muslim students who wish to study here. This collaboration forms part of our broader efforts to improve opportunities for underrepresented communities in higher education. We are hugely grateful to The Aziz Foundation for their support."
The scholarships are for students starting a Masters degree in September 2023 in courses covering a wide range of areas, including Media and Journalism, Technology, Sustainability and the Environment, Law, Policy, and Creative Content.
