How to apply for the Scholarship
You must apply for and receive an offer to study a full-time master’s (including MRes) at the University of Nottingham before applying for this scholarship. Search for courses and find out how to apply.
When you have received your offer to study with us, you can apply through the scholarships section of our application system, NottinghamHub.
If you have an offer for an MRes course, email the scholarships team on [email protected] for instructions on how to apply.
Applicants will be assessed first and foremost on how they can demonstrate their vision, and tangible plan for developing a specific solution that will positively contribute to key economic, environmental, structural, social, or political challenges within in their home country. Strong applicants will be able to link this to the learning outcomes of their course of study, and how this will facilitate their efforts. Where the ethos of Developing Solutions has been clearly evidenced, applications will then be looked at in line with more traditional scholarship criteria, including your reasons for studying at Nottingham and noteworthy achievements.
Make sure you have enough time to prepare strong answers. We will assess your responses and academic merit when making scholarship decisions.
Please note that there is a strict word count limit for all questions, which is outlined at the end of each question. The system does not automatically limit this, so you would be encouraged to check your application before you submit. Any responses submitted that exceed the outlined word count may not be reviewed.
You do not need to respond to your offer before submitting your application for this scholarship, however awards will only be made to students who accept their offer to study with us.
We will assess all scholarship applications before making any awards. You may be offered a scholarship of either 50% or 100% of tuition fees. We will contact you in early July 2023 to confirm the outcome of your application.
If you are awarded this scholarship, it will be deducted from the tuition fees charged to you as a student at the University of Nottingham. We will not pay tuition fee scholarships to you directly.
In some cases, students are eligible to apply for more than one University of Nottingham award. Please note in no scenario would a Developing Solutions Award be combined with a Regional Scholarship, and in the unlikely event you were to be offered both, the highest value award would take precedence. Very occasionally students may be offered Developing Solutions alongside a scholarship from their Academic School or a Sporting award. To maximise the reach of the University’s Scholarships offering, we aim not to double award, but in exceptional cases, this may be possible where the combined total does not exceed 100% of tuition fees.
