Scholarship opportunities are available subject to funding each year and will be advertised on our website as well as in the country where eligible applicants can apply.
Currently we are not receiving applications online for undergraduate scholarships.
Overview of Selection Process
Below is an overview of the selection and placement process:
Scholarships are promoted and advertised through our offices in South Sudan and Sudan, and our affiliated Windle Trusts in Uganda and Kenya. See our current criteria below.
Applications are checked and assessed against basic Selection Criteria in the country of application.
Applications and supporting documents of candidates meeting the basic criteria are considered for interview shortlisting by in-country selection committees.
Candidates are interviewed. Those short-listed for interview are advised to start arranging the process of taking the English language test (IELTS) and score at least 6.5 and not less than 6.0 in all components, as this is a usual admission requirement of UK Universities.
Interview reports, together with the application forms and supporting documents, are assessed by a final selection committee to decide which candidates should be placed on the “priority list” of selected students for placement on scholarships in the UK.
Once a candidate is selected and on the Priority List, UK programme staff work intensively with the candidate and the universities to seek the most appropriate course of study. The priority list is a pool of potential candidates for placement and has more candidates than places available in any one year (Usually, over 80 selected applicants). Candidates who cannot be placed in available scholarship schemes, for one reason or another, remain on the priority list for a maximum of 3 years.
Confirmation of the scholarship is given as early as possible, in order to give the candidate time to apply for a visa and prepare for travel to the UK.
When considering candidates:
Priority is given to applicants of particular merit taking into account academic ability, need, development impact, leadership potential and personal qualities.
Preference is given to subjects that offer a high probability of future employment in the countries that we select candidates from and are of direct value to development.
