The scholarships are available to students from Vietnam, India, USA, Canada and countries of the European Union. Applications received from outside these countries will not be considered. This prestigious scheme is the first scholarship of its kind in Wales and is funded by the Global Wales Programme – a partnerships between Welsh Government, Universities Wales, British Council Wales and the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales.

All universities in Wales offer scholarships under the scheme, and you need to have already applied for a place to study an eligible postgraduate programme before they submit your scholarship application.

You can now make up to three applications to different Welsh universities, providing you have applied for all the courses and universities that you are seeking a scholarship for.
