What is the Anamax Charitable Foundation Scholarship?

A Chemistry graduate of the University of Nottingham and his wife, a lawyer, have established scholarships to assist overseas students in International Human Rights Law.

The scholarships are to be awarded to candidates from developing countries in which increased awareness of human rights can be seen to be needed and who would return home to work in human rights. For a list of eligible countries, please visit –

The Anamax Charitable Foundation Scholarships (up to the value of £2,750) will cover:

  • Travel to/from Nottingham to attend the course (inc. airfare, airport transfers)
