LLM Scholarships

The Transitional Justice Institute is pleased to make available three scholarship opportunities to particularly highly qualified candidates accepted onto our LLM courses at Ulster University.

Anna Eggert bursary for Gender, Conflict and Human Rights

Anna Eggert was born in Germany in 1956. After having completed a Social Sciences degree in Essen, she moved to Northern Ireland in 1984 and worked as a Language Assistant and later a Lecturer in the German Department of what was then the Ulster Polytechnic. She held various jobs in the voluntary and community sector in the years following: Development Officer and then Training Officer with Falls Development Agency (Worknet), Senior Development Officer with Making Belfast Work on the Shankill, Project Manager of Training for Women Network, and Head of Operations with the Community Fund.

In a voluntary capacity she was Chair of the Board of Directors of Cranmore Integrated Primary School and on the Management Committee of Downtown Women's Centre. She obtained an MA in Marketing from Ulster University. She was also an enthusiastic Blue Badge tour guide, putting her deep and lasting love of Ireland to practical use. Anna died of leukemia in 2011.

The Transitional Justice Institute is pleased to make available a scholarship to a particularly highly qualified candidate accepted onto the LLM Gender, Conflict and Human Rights, on a full- or part-time basis, to commence their studies in September 2017. This will be awarded on a partial fee basis, whereby a portion of the fees required of the successful applicant will be paid by the TJI (£1000 for successful applicant).

In selecting the successful applicant, particular attention will be paid to the likely benefit to the wider community of the applicant's participation on the degree. Such likely benefit can be evidenced through the applicant's work to date to the benefit of the wider community, to include a discussion of how participation in the programme will add value to the applicant's ongoing work and future plans. In addition, the applicant's academic credentials, as well as the likely benefit to the individual applicant, will be considered.

The scholarship will be awarded on the basis of evaluation by the Transitional Justice Institute Directorate in consultation with the LLM Course Director.

The TJI reserves the right not to award any scholarship in a particular year should suitably qualified candidates not be identified in the applicant pool.

Key dates

The full LLM application and scholarship application must be submitted before 12 noon on 19 July, 2017.

The successful applicant will be informed of the outcome of the selection process by 31 July, 2017.
