Scholarships and Student Funding

GREAT Scholarships

Five GREAT scholarships are available for students from India for eligible postgraduate Masters study for the 2017-2018 academic session.

Each scholarship will award an amount of £5,000 and will be tenable for one academic year.


The scholarships will be awarded to a student from India who are accepted for admission on a full-time basis for a one-year taught postgraduate Masters programme of study with the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.

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.


Applications for this scholarship are no longer being accepted for 2017-18 as the deadline of 3rd April 2017 has now passed.

Selection Procedure

All applicants will be notified of the outcome in June 2017.
