New Julius Nyerere Scholarship

The University of Edinburgh has announced a new Scholarship to commemorate Julius Nyerere

The University of Edinburgh has announced a new 'Julius Nyerere Scholarship' to commemorate the life of Tanzania's first President. 

Julius Nyerere was the first Tanzanian to study in the UK coming to the University of Edinburgh on a scholarship in 1949 to study History and Economics. His time in Edinburgh shaped his politics and values throughout his life.

In remembrance of the 10th anniversary of his death the Scholarship will fully fund one Tanzanian per annum to complete a Masters degree at the University of Edinburgh.
