Essential Information about The Edinburgh Global Online Distance Learning Scholarships

You are unable to amend or edit a personal statement once submitted. If the deadline
date for the scholarship has not passed you may send a revised personal statement that
will be uploaded for you.
Both the original and revised personal statement will be made available to the selection
panel, together with all documents submitted as part of the application for admission. If you have not already commenced your studies you can put through a change request via
the applicant hub.

There are many reasons why the system may indicate that you are ineligible to apply. Here
are a few of the most common:

1. The scholarship is only available to applicants and you have already started your
degree programme.
2.  Incorrect start date – generally the academic year for scholarships runs from August
to July. If you have applied to begin your programme of study earlier than August
then you would not be eligible to apply. For example, an applicant due to
commence their studies in April 2022 is not eligible for a 2022-2023 scholarship and
would have to change their start date to a date within the period 1st August 2022 to
31st July 2023.
3. Ineligible programme of study: please check the eligibility criteria carefully as some
programmes are excluded from particular scholarships.
4. Your chosen School or College is not participating in the scheme.

When you receive your UUN and EASE password, you can apply for scholarships. Do not
wait to receive an offer before applying for a scholarship but the eligibility criteria for the
relevant scholarship may ask that you have received an offer of admission by the closing
date of the scholarship.

Current students who wish to apply for scholarships in relation to a new programme of
study, must first submit their application for the new programme of study.
