You know, I really like watching Robin Hood. I know we’ve all seen that film and it was set in the forest of Nottingham, which was why when I saw this opportunity, I knew I had to write about it. Because what kind of person would I be if I don’t bring you good opportunities from the forest of Nottingham?
However, this opportunity is courtesy of Sir Francis Hill (not Robin Hood, unfortunately) and this kind Sir has left a scholarship opportunity for international students.
Sir James William Francis Hill was an English solicitor and among other things, served at the University of Nottingham as its third counsellor.
In this article, I am going to carefully list out all that you should know concerning Sir Francis Hill Postgraduate Scholarship and when you are finished, you decide if this is a scholarship you want to try for or not.
