The University of Birmingham is launching a unique and prestigious new fully-funded scholarship, including accommodation expenses, for students in India – offering the winner a mentoring opportunity with the University’s Chancellor Lord Karan Bilimoria and leading alumni.
The Lord Karan Bilimoria (Chancellor’s) Scholarship will include a full tuition fee waiver and accommodation costs up to the duration of the programme for the winner, as well as four runner-up awards of a £5,000 tuition fee waiver.
The scholarship is only open to Indian students applying for postgraduate study programmes at the University’s campuses in Birmingham and Dubai. Candidates must have a valid offer of study from the University of Birmingham.
Candidates should have an excellent academic track record and demonstrate that they have overcome challenging circumstances. They should also have an innovative idea that can solve some of the complex challenges facing both the UK and India. Successful applicants who reach the final round will be asked to submit a three-minute video answering two key questions:
- What challenges have you overcome in life?
- What innovation would you suggest to solve a challenge faced by India and the UK?
Launching the Scholarship, Lord Bilimoria commented: “I am hugely proud of the University of Birmingham’s education partnerships in India and delighted to launch this exceptional opportunity to encourage outstanding individuals to join us – whether at our iconic new campus in Dubai or our beautiful historic campus in Birmingham.
“I look forward to meeting the successful candidate and it will be a particular pleasure to mentor them as they set out on their voyage of educational discovery with the University of Birmingham and become successful leaders.”
