Via Sean Flynn and the Global Congress on IP and the Public Interest comes an announcement particularly relevant for our readers and friends in Congo DRC, Egypt, Eritrea, Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia, Libya, Republic of Congo, South Sudan and Sudan*. The Civil Society Leadership Awards (CSLA) is currently accepting applications to earn a scholarship for a fully-funded Master’s degree, including an LLM in IP.
From the CSLA announcement,
The purpose of the Program is to directly assist future leaders in countries where civil society is challenged by a deficit of democratic practice in local governance and social development. Awards are available for MA degree study in the following fields at universities participating in the CSLA program.
There’s a full list of participating universities and programs available on the application page at https://civilsocietyleadershipawards.submittable.com/submit/33850. One school that is definitely offering an LLM in IP is Washington College of Law at American University in Washington, D.C. More info about their program here. This Little Leo didn’t find other schools offering exactly this degree on her brief glance/click-through, so interested cubs should check into individual schools if for more information on a particular institution.
For full details on the scholarship, see here (note that this is a google drive hosted document). Applications are due 15 December 2014 for study beginning in summer 2015.
*There are also non-African countries eligible; see the civil society leadership link above for a full list.
