College education has always been a privilege, unfortunately, in many countries. In mos cases, the tuition fees are quite high and so, they become prohibitive for many talented students who could gain a lot from it and who could also contribute a lot to the social and scientific progress, through their work.
This is why scholarships and grants were created. Although STEM domains (science, math, technology and engineering) are today favored when it comes to budget and professional opportunities, students interested in humanities can find different forms of financial support. Warwick University offers this type of support to students interested in postgraduate studies (PhD) in history, cultural studies or philosophy.

So if any of these domains are of interest to you and you have a bachelor or masters degree in them, this scholarship might be for you.
