School-specific scholarships are scholarships offered by a particular school under a University.  For example, the Institute of Education – a school/college under University of London offers school-specific scholarships  such as Centenary Masters Scholarships for International Students.

As well, fewer people know about these scholarships because they are not as easy to find as university-wide scholarships and not as known as popular scholarships. Generally, because of these reasons, there is lesser competition in applying for school-specific scholarships compared to university-wide scholarships and popular scholarships.
