Award Description

The University of Birmingham is pleased to announce one award of £2500 for America domiciled students applying for entry to an undergraduate programme at the University starting September 2022.

The scholarship will be awarded to the highest performing student starting their University of Birmingham programme in 2022/23 academic year.

Value of Award

The scholarship award is for £2500 towards tuition fees (for the first year only) of a full time undergraduate degree programme at the University starting September 2022.

Eligibility Criteria

Please note that students already registered and studying on a programme at the University of Birmingham in the UK, and students applying for MBChB Medicine and Surgery or BDS Dental Surgery are not eligible for this scholarship.

In order to be eligible, candidates must:

  • Have received an offer from the University of Birmingham and accepted it. The University of Birmingham (UK Campus) must be chosen as their firm choice on UCAS for a full time undergraduate programme starting September 2022 (the scholarship award may not be deferred).
  • Meet the academic conditions of their offer to the programme to retain the scholarship.
  • Be classed as USA domiciled.
  • Be classed by the University as an overseas fee payer for tuition fee purposes and be able to pay the outstanding tuition fees not covered by the scholarship.
  • Have sufficient funds to cover the full cost of living at the University of Birmingham, plus any visa/travel expenses associated with studying in the UK.
  • Submit their scholarship application through one of our local representatives by the deadline; 17 June 2022.
  • Upon enrolment in September 2022, pay their net tuition fees for the first year by 1 November, immediately following enrolment.

How to Apply

To apply for the scholarship students will need to have accepted an offer from the University of Birmingham and have made Birmingham their firm choice by the scholarship deadline of 17 June 2022. Selection for the award will be based purely on academic merit.

Only under exceptional circumstances in which the University is unable to choose an awardee based solely on academic merit (for instance, if two candidates have identical grades) will applicants be asked to attend an interview via Skype.

Decisions will be announced in late July/early August and the scholarships will be awarded upon the students’ enrolment in September 2022.
