The Award 

Applications for 2022/23 academic year are now closed. 

The jointly funded scholarships will cover the tuition fees and provide a stipend of £1,015/month to contribute towards the scholar’s living costs. Queen Mary waives the fees and HEC pay the stipend.

Please note that this stipend will not cover the scholar’s living costs in full and does not meet the level of financial support necessary to secure a UK visa (currently £1,334/month). The scholar will therefore need to secure additional funding in order to be able to take up their studies at Queen Mary. For further details of the requirements set out by UK Visas and Immigration, please see –https://www.welfare.qmul.ac.uk/guides/student-funds/
