  1. Can I still apply for the scholarship after finishing my degree? I.e. want to study criminology


    1. Hi Selwyn

      Thank you for your interest in the MHA Scholarships. This scholarship is intended for students pursuing their undergraduate studies, therefore it will not be applicable for students who have completed their studies.

      Ref your question, can I understand if you have completed your undergraduate degree, or if you are still pursuing your studies? For info, students who are not in their final year of undergraduate studies, can still apply for the scholarship.

      Hope the above clarifies.
