Scholarships and Student Funding

Edinburgh Global Undergraduate Maths Scholarships

A number of scholarships are offered to Mathematics students of outstanding ability from countries outside the European Union for the academic session 2017-2018.


The scholarships are worth £1,000 per year and tenable for the duration of the programme of study, subject to satisfactory progress.

A student is deemed to have made Satisfactory Progress in each year if there has been a formal School decision of either "Progress" or "Conditional Progression", without the student needing to repeat a year. If a student does not make satisfactory progress in any one year the award will terminate from that point onwards.

Scholarship cheques are handed to the winners at an award ceremony at the beginning of the academic session.


It is awarded to applicants from countries outside the European Union who are accepted for full-time admission to an undergraduate degree programme offered by the School of Mathematics at the University.

The scholarship is not available to students already on programme.

Applicants should have applied through the University and Colleges Admission Service (UCAS) and been offered a place at the University of Edinburgh by the scholarship closing date of 3 April 2017.


This scholarship is competitive and based on academic merit.


More information on how to apply for the 2017-2018 academic session will be available at the end of October 2016

Notification of award

The winners of the scholarships will be announced in late May 2017.
