The McFarlane PhD Scholarship at University of Edinburgh

One scholarship will be awarded to the best full time applicant who meets the criteria below and is accepted onto a PhD in History. The value of the award is £15,000 per year for the duration of the recipient's PhD degree programme (usually three years subject to satisfactory progress).

The Scholarship will cover the UK/EU rate of tuition fees, a stipend and research allowance (£450).

The scholarship is funded by a leading financier and his wife who have pledged their support for a new historical centre at the University of Edinburgh, which will study the influence of Scots abroad. Investment fund manager Alan McFarlane and his wife, Anne, have donated £1 Million to the Scottish Centre for Diaspora Studies, to support two PhD scholarships in perpetuity and provide 10 undergraduate access bursaries to help students in financial need. The gift is believed to be the largest private donation to a history-related project at a British University. The McFarlanes are both Edinburgh graduates.


Applicants for the scholarship must be able to demonstrate the relevance of their proposed project to the history of Scottish emigration and/or the impact of Scottish mobility on overseas countries or related themes. Proposals may focus on any period from the medieval centuries to recent times.

Successful applicants will become members of the Scottish Centre of Diaspora Studies, directed by Professor Tom Devine, and participate in the Centre’s activities, including its graduate workshop in Diaspora Studies.

Informal enquiries about the awards can be made to Dr Enda Delaney or Dr Alexander Murdoch, Acting Co-Directors of the Centre.

Two references, evidence of qualifications and a research proposal are also required but these will be taken from your EUCLID study application.

Completed application forms must be received by Scholarships and Student Funding Services no later than 31 May 2011.

The Rangel Graduate Fellowship Program, USA

The Rangel Graduate Fellowship is a program that aims to attract and prepare outstanding young people for careers in the Foreign Service in which they can help formulate, represent and implement U.S. foreign policy. Each year, the Rangel Program selects 20 outstanding Rangel Fellows in a highly competitive nationwide process and helps support them through two years of graduate study, internships and professional development activities, and entry into the Foreign Service. This program encourages the application of members of minority groups historically underrepresented in the Foreign Service and those with financial need. Fellows who successfully complete the program and Foreign Service entry requirements will receive appointments as Foreign Service Officers, one of the most exciting and rewarding careers available.

Rangel Fellows are committed to serving their country and promoting positive change globally. Individuals who have successfully completed the Rangel Program are now making a difference in countries throughout the world, including Colombia, Mexico, Panama, Venezuela, South Africa, Nigeria, Angola, China, Korea, Bangladesh, Spain and Ireland.

FELLOWSHIPS FOR GRADUATE STUDIES In 2010 the Rangel Program plans to award 20 fellowships of up to $34,000 annually towards tuition, room, board, books and mandatory fees for completion of two-year master’s degrees. At the conclusion of two years of study, the Rangel Fellow is expected to have obtained a degree in international affairs or another area of relevance to the work of the Foreign Service (such as public administration, public policy, business administration, foreign languages, economics, political science, or communications) at a graduate or professional school approved by the Rangel Program. Awardees are expected to maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 3.2 throughout their period of study.
ORIENTATION New Rangel Fellows will participate in an orientation at Howard University in mid-May, shortly after their selection. The purposes of this orientation are to familiarize the Fellows with all aspects of the fellowship and to enhance their understanding of, and skills for, Foreign Service careers.

TWO SUMMER INTERNSHIPS (CAPITOL HILL AND OVERSEAS AT U.S. EMBASSIES) Rangel Fellows will participate in two internships. The first, an internship working on international issues for Members of Congress in Washington, D.C., will occur in the summer after being selected and before the first year of graduate study. The second will be an overseas internship in a U. S. Embassy that takes place during the summer between the first and second years of graduate study.

MENTORING Each Fellow will receive mentoring from a Foreign Service Officer throughout the duration of the fellowship as well as during his/her early employment at the State Department.

CURRICULUM Fellows must obtain graduate degrees in international affairs or a related subject such as economics, history, political science, public administration, communications, public policy, business administration or foreign languages at a graduate or professional school approved by the Rangel Program. Studies in law do not satisfy this requirement. Applicants apply to two-year graduate programs at U.S. universities simultaneously with their application to the Rangel Program.

EMPLOYMENT/CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATIONS Fellows who successfully complete the Rangel Program and Foreign Service entry requirements will receive appointments as Foreign Service Officers. Each Rangel Fellow who obtains a master’s degree is committed to a minimum of three years of service as a Foreign Service Officer.

Application and selection procedure

Applicants applying for both academic admission and a VLIR-UOS scholarship need to consider both the admission requirements and the scholarship criteria.
Applicants applying for academic admission but not for a scholarship simply need to fulfill only the admission requirements of the host university running the programme.

The host university is in charge of the academic admission of applications. Study results will be taken into consideration during the selection, but the most important academic selection criteria are relevant professional experience and prospects for applying the acquired insights after return to the developing country. The academic admission requirements are specific to every programme. Please peruse the requirements from the relevant programme.

A joint selection committee of VLIR-UOS and the host university is responsible for selecting scholarships. The host university – not the applicant – forwards the scholarship applications to the VLIR-UOS secretariat if the academic admission requirements are met. The VLIR-UOS scholarship criteria relate to the qualifications required of all scholarship applicants and selection criteria evaluated by the selection committee.

All applicants receive an acknowledgement of receipt of their applications. Applicants whose proposals are deemed academically admissible and who are awarded a scholarship for the academic year 2011-2012 will be contacted by VLIR-UOS and the host university by e-mail in May and June 2011. Applicants whose proposals are deemed academically admissible will be notified by the host university.

This is how you apply for the academic year 2011-2012

You can apply for a VLIR-UOS scholarship from the 1st of October 2010.

You must fill in the pre-screening form at the bottom of the page of the programme you want to follow. You may only choose one programme. If you apply to more than one programme your details will be entered more than once in our central database and all your applications will be inadmissible.

So you must follow the correct and complete procedure below.

1. Apply on the VLIR-UOS website via the pre-screening form: fill in name, birth date, country, etc…;
2. Receive a VLIR-UOS application/file number by return e-mail from VLIR-UOS;
3. Apply on the website from the host university through the link mentioned in the return e-mail from VLIR-UOS;
4. Write the received VLIR-UOS application/file number on the application file from the host university;
5. Send a printout of your application file along with all required documents (diploma transcripts, motivation, etc…) to the International Office of the host university, not to VLIR-UOS.

Applications that are incomplete, illegible or that reach the host university’s International Office after the deadline will be automatically rejected.

The deadline to apply for a scholarship from VLIR-UOS for a master programme is the 1st of February 2011.
