You must apply for this scholarship online. As part of the application, you will need to provide answers to three short questions about your course of study, your goals for the future and your financial situation.

We may request a document which confirms your nationality.

If you are eligible for an Academic Excellence scholarship we will consider your application for this award too.

How we allocate

This is a competitive process and only one applicant per country will be successful.

A panel of senior staff from the University will select the successful scholarship awardees.

We aim to inform you of the outcome of your scholarship application by early June.

Within two weeks of being offered the scholarship you must accept the scholarship. Otherwise, you will lose your scholarship and it will be offered to a reserve candidate.

Terms and conditions

If you defer your place at the University of York you cannot keep your scholarship, but you can reapply the following year.

GREAT scholarships may not be combined with Academic Excellence scholarships.

GREAT scholarships may be combined with University of York departmental scholarships.

GREAT scholarships may be combined with external funding as long as this does not cover 100% of your tuition fees.

Successful candidates will be required to represent the University of York and the British Council as an ambassador for the GREAT scheme.
