The British Council has launched a scholarship programme in partnership with 19 UK universities aimed at benefiting women from the Americas, South Asia and South East Asia.

About the Scholarship

They are looking for women with a background in STEM, who can demonstrate their need for financial support and who wish to inspire future generations of women to pursue careers in STEM.

This scholarship programme aims to increase opportunities in STEM for girls and women. According to data from the UN Scientific Education and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), fewer than 30 percent of researchers worldwide are women and only 30 percent of female students select STEM-related fields in higher education.

Globally, female students’ enrolment is particularly low in Information and Communications Technology (three percent), natural science, mathematics and statistics (five percent), and engineering, manufacturing and construction (eight percent).

Eligibility Criteria

We are looking for women who:

  • are citizens and residents of the eligible countries in the Americas, South Asia and East Asia
  • are able to take up a full-time course of study in the UK for the academic year from Sept/Oct 2021 – 2022
  • can demonstrate a need for financial support
  • have an undergraduate degree that will enable them to gain access onto one of the pre-selected postgraduate courses at a UK university
  • can attain the level of English required for postgraduate study at a UK university now or upon completion of a pre-sessional English course
  • are active in the field with work experience or a proven interest in their subject area
  • are passionate about their course of study and are willing to engage as committed British Council scholarship alumni
Scholarship Support
  • academic prestige – the UK’s universities are amongst the world’s leaders in STEM subjects
  • economic support will include tuition fees, stipend, travel costs, visa and health coverage fees
  • special support for mothers
  • English language support
