The Consumer Affairs International Scholarship Programme

Scholarship Details

The Consumer Affairs International Scholarship programme is designed to facilitate the immersion of international students into the UK educational system. A scholarship of £1000 will be provided bi-annually in December and April to the winner of our essay contest to assist with the costs of studying abroad. We encourage international students with an avid interest in public policy, finance, or economics to apply. Our goal is for their differing perspectives to bring about discourse that will contribute to a better understanding of our consumer financial markets.

Spring Application Deadline: April 25th 2014
Winter Application Deadline: tbd

Who is Eligible

All students who are currently enrolled at an accredited two- or four-year college or university outside of the UK are eligible for the £1000 award.

How to Apply

As Leonardo da Vinci once said, “Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward. For there you have been, and there you will always long to return.” With this quote in mind, discuss, in 1,000 words or less, your motivations for studying abroad in the UK, your expectations of culture shock, and how you anticipate the experience changing your life perspectives.

The Spring application period will start at 8.30am February 7th 2014 and end at 11.59pm April 25th 2014. The winner will be selected by April 30th 2014.
