The Enabling Freedom Scholarship scheme launches

We are delighted to announce that up to two full scholarships to cover travel, tuition fees and living expenses will be awarded as part of our Enabling Freedom Network programme to North Korean escapees, as a result of Connect: North Korea’s recently established partnership with the University of Edinburgh.

The scholarships will enable up to two North Korean escapees from any safe haven to pursue any full-time, one-year taught postgraduate degree on-campus in Edinburgh through a full scholarship alongside Connect: North Korea’s social leadership training programme.

The Scholarship includes:

  1. Full tuition fees;
  2. A stipend of £15,000 per annum to help with your living expenses; and
  3. Visa costs, healthcare, and return travel to Edinburgh.

To join our programme in September 2023, you must be a North Korean escapee from any country with a dedication to enable other North Korean people in your community to build new and better lives.

We want to hear from you in your scholarship application about how you intend to use the social leadership training and the university scholarship to create change for more escaped North Korean people.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please read more about the programme, check the full eligibility criteria, and find out how to apply.
