International Smart Mind Scholarship at Keele University

May 13, 2016

Keele University is pleased to offer 5 International Smart Mind Scholarships for taught postgraduate students at the value of £5,000 each.  One of these is for international fee paying students who are expecting to graduate from their undergraduate degree at a UK university (including Keele) in July 2016 and are looking to progress on to a Master’s degree at Keele University.\r\n\r\nBefore applying for the scholarship, applicants must have already made an application for a taught Master’s degree at Keele University, to begin in September 2016.\r\n\r\nExceptions\r\n\r\nStudents who are sponsored by a third party outside of the family are not eligible for this scholarship. The International Smart Minds scholarship cannot be combined with any other Keele scholarship. In cases where students are eligible for more than one scholarship, the highest value will apply.\r\n\r\nHow to Apply\r\n\r\nSubmit an essay of no more than 250 words to international@keele.ac.uk telling us which Smart Mind has inspired you to pursue further studies in your subject area of choice. This could be your professor at University, a Nobel Prize winner, or another well-known figure in your area. Essays should be typed/word processed and not handwritten.\r\n\r\nPlease remember to include your Keele ID number in your scholarship application.  Essays will be considered alongside the original application to study at Keele, personal statement and academic achievements and the awards made to the best all round candidates. The judging panel will comprise academic and professional staff representing all Schools and the International Office.\r\n\r\nFor more information, please see the following  webpages: https://www.keele.ac.uk/studentfunding/bursariesscholarships/internationalfunding/postgraduate/internationalsmartmindsscholarship/
