International Smart Minds Scholarship

About the Award

Smart Minds choose Keele!

Keele University is pleased to offer 5 International Smart Mind Scholarships for taught postgraduate students at the value of £5,000 each. These Scholarships will be awarded to the best 5 entries to the International Smart Minds essay competition. 

The scholarship will be applied as a tuition fee discount and no cash alternative is available.

Eligibility

Before applying for the scholarship, applicants must have already made an application for a taught Master’s degree at Keele University, to begin in September 2017.

Any offer of scholarship will be conditional upon applicants meeting the academic and English language requirements for their chosen course as set out in the offer letter.

This award is for international fee payers only and can not be combined with any other University funded scholarship or bursary which is intended for international fee paying students. In cases where an applicant is eligible for more than one award, the highest value award will be applied.

Exceptions

Students 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.

How to Apply

Submit 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.

Please remember to include your Keele ID number in your scholarship application.

The deadline for submitting an application is Friday 26th May 2017.

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.

The judging panel’s decision is final.
