BUNAC Educational Scholarships & Travel Awards – apply now

12/01/2011

Applications are now open for the BUNAC Educational Scholarship Trust (BEST) Scholarships and Travel Awards -BEST scholarships are open to UK passport holders who are currently or, have been within the last five years inclusive, in full-time tertiary education at a UK university or college and who are planning to undertake postgraduate study in either the USA or Canada.

Up to eight scholarships are awarded each year from a fund of $50,000. The individual amounts awarded vary but a typical award is in the region of approximately $5000-$10,000. The sum of $4,000 is available as the Christopher J. Harbour Memorial Scholarship to a candidate looking to do sports-related studies and $2,000 as the John S. Ball Award to a candidate looking to pursue a teaching or geography-related career. At the judging stage, preference is given to those whose proposed study in North America is likely to do most to further transatlantic understanding or to those who are required to go to the US or Canada to do a specific course

The BEST Scholarships are top-up funds, not a prime source of funding and candidates should be actively looking to secure funding from other sources while in the process of applying to BEST. Candidates cannot already be engaged in their course of study in North America at the time of application although they should be looking to apply to courses in their chosen field.

The closing date for applications is Friday 11th March 2011. Short-listed applicants will be invited to London for an interview in June.

Application forms are available online at www.bunac.org/awards
