Scholarship Overview

 The Global Study Awards was started co-jointly by the British Council, the International Student Identity Card Association, and StudyPortals. The Global Study Awards is recommended for students who have successfully taken the IELTS exam and show exceptional promise. Candidates can enter the competition if they plan to use their IELTS results to apply to a full-time undergraduate or postgraduate program in an English-speaking country.

This merit-based scholarship is responsible for helping the most promising students to pursue an undergraduate or postgraduate degree that will help them bring about positive change. To be eligible for the scholarship, students are required to be over 18 years of age, plan to study abroad on an undergraduate or postgraduate course, and appear for the IELTS exam.

Deserving students are required to show a strong commitment to developing their careers and a sincere interest in increasing intercultural coherence. Every year, two winners are selected to receive the award. The maximum individual award is for £10,000 which would be paid directly to the higher education institution where the applicants plan to study. In case the tuition fee is below the maximum fund amount, the remaining funds would be allocated towards their living costs for a maximum of 52 weeks, starting from when they first registered at the institution.
