The Michael Wills Scholarship is for students who come from countries that have experienced conflict in recent years. It is funded and run by the grant-making organisation the Dulverton Trust and by the Oxford Department of International Development. It is for graduate students studying selected courses. Those courses are MPhil Development Studies, MSc Refugee & Forced Migration Studies, MSc Migration Studies, MSc Economics for Development and MSc Global Governance and Diplomacy. The scholarship covers the full cost of university tuition fees. There is also a grant of £12,900 per year for living expenses. It lasts for the duration of the course so if the course lasts two years, the scholarship is awarded for two years.
