The Yusuf Ali Fund was established in 1956, following the death of Mr Yusuf Ali. Its purpose then was to assist University of London students from India and Pakistan and was used in a discretionary manner for many years.
Today, we are honoured to offer the Yusuf Ali Scholarship for students of Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi descent to enable them to study on one of the campus-based postgraduate programmes offered by the Institute of Commonwealth Studies and the Human Rights Consortium at the School of Advanced Study, University of London. Currently, these are the MA in Understanding and Securing Human Rights and its pathway in the Human Rights of Latin America, and research degrees.
