£10,000 Global Scholarship for Bachelors, Masters and PhD Students


The ISIC Association, StudyPortals and British Council IELTS are launching The Global Study Awards for international students from any country to study in any educational institution OUTSIDE of their own country.

The Global Study Awards recognises studying abroad as a positively life changing experience for many students, opening their minds to alternative ways of personal life and professional career, as well as promoting intercultural understanding and tolerance.

The winners will be selected based on how the students plan to make an impact on society, and improve their intercultural skills through their studies.

The Global Study Awards is designed to support highly motivated, talented individuals who can actively demonstrate:

  • their potential to contribute to society through their studies;
  • a strong commitment to developing their career;
  • their sincere interest in increasing intercultural understanding and exchange.

Successful candidates will be willing to engage with the British Council IELTS, ISIC and StudyPortals communities, and publicly share their experiences with other students.
