Starting August 2015, StudyPortals are launching the Global Study Awards together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS, which offers students the chance to receive up to £10,000 to expand their horizon and study abroad. They want to ultimately encourage young people to study abroad as part of their tertiary studies in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages. The Global Study Awards recognises studying abroad as a positively life changing experience for many students, opening their minds to alternative ways of personal life and professional career, as well as promoting intercultural understanding and tolerance. The Global Study Awards is replacing their previous scholarship, and offers students the chance to receive a higher funding for their studies.
Get up to £10,000 to Expand Your Horizon
An individual global study award has a maximum value of £10,000
The Award prize will be applied toward the cost of tuition fees in the first instance, paid directly to the Higher Education Institution that the successful candidate will attend.
If tuition fees are below the maximum individual award fund of £10,000, the remaining funds may be allocated per diem for living costs for a maximum of 52 weeks starting from when the student first registered at the higher education institution.
