King’s Study Abroad Excellence Scholarships are presented each semester to our most distinguished Study Abroad students in the Faculties of Arts & Humanities (A&H) and Social Science & Public Policy (SSPP). Scholarships are made to candidates of outstanding quality who demonstrate in their application how their time at King’s builds on their academic record, and how it will help fulfil both their personal and academic ambitions.  

Eligibility requirements

Students must have been accepted on to the Study Abroad programme at King’s as independent (fee-paying) students, for at least one semester and have registered on modules equivalent to at least three quarters of their total credit value from the Faculties of A&H and/or SSPP. 

Criteria for selection

Students will be selected on the quality of their application. Each applicant must submit a personal statement, in which they reflect on how their study at King’s relates to their personal and academic development to date, and how they will be able to benefit from it in the future. In addition to this, students will also be assessed on the submission of three themed 'mini blogs' and their creative writing skills. 

Conditions of Scholarship

In accepting the scholarship, successful candidates will be expected to complete 4 blog entries of a maximum of 500 words each with a minimum of 4 high quality photographs per 'blog post' to be featured on our website. Each blog post will have a particular theme attached to it and all will discuss your experience studying abroad at King’s College London, studying within your chosen Faculty and your experiences of living in London and the UK in general. Successful candidates will be provided with each blog post’s theme and submission deadlines.

For the academic year 2018/19, there is £10,000 to be awarded to multiple students across both semesters.
