Ten scholarships will have a value of £5,000 each while a further twenty scholarships will have a value of £3,000 which will be tenable for one academic year.
The scholarships will be awarded to students who are nationals of countries outwith the EU who are accepted for admission on a full-time basis for a postgraduate Master’s programme of study at the University of Edinburgh.
Applicants should already have been offered a place at the University of Edinburgh and should have firmly accepted that offer or be intending to do so. Preference will be given to candidates who have not already had the opportunity to study in Scotland.
The scholarship will be awarded on the basis of academic merit. Candidates must have, or expect to obtain, the overseas equivalent of a UK first-class honours degree.
Completed application forms must be received by Scholarships and Student Funding Services no later than 1 April 2011.
Eligible applicants should complete an online application form.
A Selection Committee will meet in late May 2011 to select the scholarship holders. The winners of the scholarships will be announced in early June 2011.
