UK: International Master’s Scholarships at The University of Edinburgh

The University of Edinburgh will offer sixteen Master’s scholarships for postgraduate study in any subject offered by the University.

Each scholarship will have a value of £3,000 which will be deducted from the tuition fee. The scholarships will be tenable for one academic year.

Eligibility
The scholarships will be awarded to students who are accepted for admission on a full-time basis for a postgraduate Master’s programme of study at the University of Edinburgh from the following countries:

Africa Mexico
Canada Middle East
China Norway
Hong Kong Russia
India Singapore
Japan Taiwan
Korea Thailand
Malaysia USA

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.

Criteria
The scholarship will be awarded broadly on the basis of academic merit. Candidates must have, or expect to obtain, a UK first class or 2:1 Honours degree at undergraduate level or the international equivalent.

In addition to the above academic qualifications, the selection panel will also take into account the financial circumstances of applicants to ensure that as far as possible a student’s financial situation does not impede a university education at the University of Edinburgh.
Application Procedure

Applicants can download an application form in Rich Text Format (RTF) or PDF (which requires Adobe Acrobat Reader), or request one to be sent to them from:

The Scholarships and Student Finance Office
The University of Edinburgh
Old College
South Bridge
Edinburgh

E-mail: scholarships@ed.ac.uk
Telephone: +44 131 651 4070

A completed scholarship application form, together with a copy of your degree transcript and two academic references, should be received by the Scholarships and Student Finance Office by the closing date of 2 April 2007 in order to be considered for the scholarship.

Selection Procedure
A Selection Committee will meet in late May 2007 to select the scholarship holders. The winners of the scholarships will be announced by the end of May 2007.
