Deutsche Post DHL Scholarships

31 May 2012

5 Edinburgh "Deutsche Post DHL Scholarships" are available for postgraduate Master's study in eligible programmes supported by the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation for the 2012-2013 academic session.

The aim of the scholarships is to attract the best and most motivated people to Edinburgh to play a part in building low carbon economies around the world.

Each scholarship will have a value of up to £8,000 which will be tenable for one academic year.


The scholarships are open to UK, EU and overseas students who are accepted for admission on a full-time basis for an eligible postgraduate Master's programme of study at the University of Edinburgh.

Applications from students studying a one-year taught Master's degree in one of the following eligible subject areas are considered:

  • MSc in Carbon Capture and Storage
  • MSc in Carbon Finance
  • MSc in Carbon Management
  • MSc in Sustainable Energy Systems
  • LLM in Global Environment & Climate Change Law

Applicants should already have been offered a place at the University of Edinburgh and should have firmly accepted that offer. Candidates who already hold full sponsorship are not eligible for the Deutsche Post DHL Scholarships.


The scholarship will be awarded on the basis of academic merit and the benefits to the student. Candidates must have, or expect to obtain the international equivalent of a UK first class or 2:1 Honours degree at undergraduate level.

Applications for this scholarship for students on the MSc in Carbon Finance will only be considered from students who are normally resident in any country in Africa or any least developed country.


Applicants should submit a 1000 word essay, explaining why they feel they should be awarded the scholarship, and how the scholarship will benefit them.
