Number of Scholarships:

It is expected that a total of 22 scholarships will be funded from the HEA in the academic year 2013/2014.

The scholarship is open to any non -EU/EEA students however the 2013/2014 scheme will prioritise applications targeted at China, India and Brazil.

Scholarship value/inclusions:

The HEA will award a scholarship fund to the student (through the HEI that the student is attending) amounting to €10,000 for one study year.  This fund is directed at covering student costs and living expenses.

The HEI will be required to give a FULL fee waiver to the student for the scholarship year (i.e. tuition fee and registration charge are waived).  This is the  minimum  matching funding  requirement that institutions will be required to make to the scholarship programme.
