WHAT ARE THE GLOBAL STUDY AWARDS?
We would like to encourage young people to study abroad as part of their tertiary studies in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages. That is why ISIC Association, StudyPortals and British Council IELTS are launching The Global Study Awards. 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.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
There are 6 Global Study Awards (GSA) in total:
- 4 GSA winners are selected for the Autumn 2017 intake (studies starting between 1 August - 31 October 2017)
- 2 GSA winners are selected for the Spring 2018 intake (studies starting between 1 January – 31 March 2018)
A selection panel comprised of representatives from the partners will review and assess the entries. Strong candidates will be shortlisted and invited for an in person interview prior to the final winning selection. The winners will be announced within 3 months after the application deadline.
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.
