British council in Collaboration with ISIC Association a non-profit organisation, IELTS the International English Language Testing System and StudyPortals the international study choice platform hereby present THE GLOBAL STUDY AWARDS.

What Are the Global Study Awards?
We want to ultimately encourage young people to study abroad as part of their tertiary studies in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages. That is why ISIC Association, StudyPortals and British Council IELTS are launching The Global Study Awards. The Global Study Awards recognises studying abroad as a positively life changing experience for many students, opening their minds to alternative ways of personal life and professional career, as well as promoting intercultural understanding and tolerance.

Award Cash
Get up to £10,000 to Expand Your Horizon
An individual global study award has a maximum value of £10,000
The Award prize will be applied toward the cost of tuition fees in the first instance, paid directly to the Higher Education Institution that the successful candidate will attend.

If tuition fees are below the maximum individual award fund of £10,000, the remaining funds may be allocated per diem for living costs for a maximum of 52 weeks starting from when the student first registered at the higher education institution.

Application Timeline

Over a six month period, two study award announcements will be made, with a maximum of three Study Awards granted to students at each announcement point (maximum nine awards in total). The six month time span allows for consideration.

Who Are We Looking For?
The Global Study Awards is designed to support highly motivated, talented individuals who can actively demonstrate:

*Their potential to contribute to society through their studies;
*A strong commitment to developing their career;
*Their sincere interest in increasing intercultural understanding and exchange.

Successful candidates will be willing to engage with the British Council IELTS, ISIC and StudyPortals communities, and publicly share their experiences with other students. The Global Study Awards will be available to prospective students in all countries worldwide.
