Scholarships and Student Funding

Principal's Indian Masters Scholarships

The University of Edinburgh will offer 12 Masters scholarships for students from India for postgraduate Masters study in any subject offered by the University for the 2015-2016 academic session.

Each scholarship will have a value of £3,000 each and will be tenable for one academic year.


The scholarships will be awarded to students from India who are accepted for admission on a full-time basis for a postgraduate Masters programme of study at the University of Edinburgh.

Applicants should already have been offered a place at the University of Edinburgh and should have firmly accepted that offer or be intending to do so. Preference will be given to candidates who have not already had the opportunity to study in Scotland.


The scholarship will be awarded on the basis of academic merit. Candidates must have, or expect to obtain, the overseas equivalent of a UK first-class honours degree.


This award is now closed. We are no longer accepting applications for the 2015-2016 academic session.

Selection Procedure

A Selection Committee will meet in May 2015 to select the scholarship holders. The winners of the scholarships will be announced in early June 2015.
