Below is an overview of the general scholarship selection and placement process:

  • Scholarships are promoted and advertised through Websites such as RocApply
  • 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.  
  • Once a candidate is selected and on the Priority List, the staff works 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.
  • 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, to give the candidate time to apply for a visa and prepare for travel.

When considering candidates: 

  • Priority is mostly given to applicants of particular merit taking into account academic ability, need, and 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.

Please note

  • Applications take time so be patient while waiting for an outcome and whether or not your application has been successful.
  • Applications from women and individuals from other particularly disadvantaged groups are encouraged.
  • Eligible applicants are welcome from all religious backgrounds and ethnic groups.
  • A scholarship, in most cases, will cover full tuition fees, maintenance stipends, visa costs, and return airfares.
  • There is no application fee.
  • Submitting an Application Form does not in any way guarantee you an offer of a scholarship award.
