De Montfort University Global LGBTQ+Allies Scholarship
From the Nominator
De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) is committed to recruiting and supporting students from all backgrounds and communities. In recognition of the prevailing international hostility towards LGBTQ+ people and communities, DMU introduced its Global LGBTQ+Allies Scholarship, designed to support LGBTQ+ students from across the globe to come to the UK and study at DMU, in particular from countries that exhibit hostile behaviour towards LGBTQ+ people. The objective of the postgraduate scholarship is to promote the advocacy of, and change global attitudes towards, LGBTQ+ rights worldwide – reflecting DMU’s mission to challenge convention and exemplifying the university’s pledge to delivery of public good.
