Masters Degree at an International University

A Masters’ degree at an institution abroad: The programme will fund one or two students to read for a masters’ qualification in ecology or conservation. The purpose is to train the recipient in the science and/or implementation of conservation; and to facilitate interaction with the larger international community involved in conservation science and practice. Applications for studying a masters’ degree at an institution abroad have to be routed via the Inlaks Shivdasani Scholarship programmme
