Tips for a successful application from the Scholarship panel
- You must explain how the situation in your country has affected you personally. Don’t just describe the situation in your country.
- Please do not send a CV but include any evidence you have to support your personal statement. We may request evidence from you at a later date if your application is short listed.
- Don’t focus on your academic qualifications unless it is relevant to your application.
- The Scholarship is for a substantial amount of funding so we expect to see students giving time and consideration to their application and providing us with detailed information about their situation.
All parts of the form must be completed - if you don’t then your application will not be considered.
Please remember that the Scholarship panel will only have your form to enable them to judge your application so try to put as much relevant information in there as possible. You may want to highlight how the situation in your country has specifically affected you and your family and why you wish to take up a course here in Bradford.
All completed forms must be received by Monday 20th June 2011 - applications submitted after this date will not be considered.
What happens next?
The Scholarship panel will consider your application in July. You will be informed of the decision mid-July.
