The Aziz Foundation is delighted to announce that it will be offering Master’s scholarships at UCL’s Faculty of Social and Historical Sciences (SHS), where talented British Muslims can receive a scholarship to undertake postgraduate study.
UCL SHS has become one of the Foundation’s Preferred Partners, having demonstrated its commitment in extending Widening Participation to the postgraduate level as well as providing tailored academic and pastoral support to its Muslim student population.
The Faculty is intent in playing its part in diversifying the academy, through initiatives such as ‘100 in 10’, which aims to recruit one hundred PhD students from Black British and British Pakistani backgrounds over the next ten years. Furthermore, the UCL’s Inclusive Curriculum Health Check and Student Curriculum Partner Review Project ensure that students are at the forefront of diversifying its curriculum.
The University is also strongly determined to eliminate the degree awarding gap by 2024 – a goal that is incorporated within its institutional Equality and Inclusion Plan.
We look forward to working closely with the university to widen access and increase opportunities at the postgraduate taught level for British Muslim communities.
