Commonwealth of Independent States Undergraduate Excellence Award
Unlock your potential with our £2,000 tuition fee scholarship for students from the CIS.
We're offering scholarships for high-achieving international students who live in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and neighbouring countries in Central Asia, covering £2,000 towards tuition fees in the first year of your degree course at the University of Nottingham.
The application closing date for this scholarship is Thursday 22 April 2021.
To apply for this scholarship, you must:
- be domiciled in one of the eligible countries (listed below)
- be classed as an 'overseas' student for tuition fee purposes
- hold an offer to begin a full-time undergraduate degree programme at the University of Nottingham in September 2021, in any subject area
How to apply
You must apply for an undergraduate degree course at the University of Nottingham and receive an offer of study before they can apply for this scholarship. Search for courses and find out how to apply through UCAS.
Once you have received your offer, you can apply for this scholarship through the scholarships section of MyNottingham. Applications will close at midnight (UK time) on Thursday 22 April 2021.
You will need to answer a series of questions about your achievements, study plans and reasons for choosing to study at the University of Nottingham. Allow yourself time to prepare strong answers, as the scholarships will be offered to applicants based on academic merit and the strength of your application statements.
If you are domiciled in an eligible country but have a different nationality, you may not see this scholarship displayed in MyNottingham. In this case, email the scholarships team on email@example.com to enable your application. You should apply for our regional excellence awards based on your country of domicile rather than your nationality – unless you are studying in the UK, in which case you should apply for the UK International Undergraduate Excellence Award.
Scholarships will be awarded after assessing all scholarship applications. We will contact you in early June 2021 to confirm the outcome of your application.
Scholarships will only be awarded to students who firmly accept our degree course within UCAS. You do not need to respond to your UCAS offers before applying for this scholarship.
This award cannot be combined with another University of Nottingham regional scholarship or an International Sporting Excellence Award. However, you may also be able to receive a subject scholarship from your academic school, a sports scholarship package, or an external scholarship from your country, where the combined total does not exceed 100% of tuition fees.
If you are awarded this scholarship, it will be deducted from the tuition fees charged to you as a student at the University of Nottingham. We will not pay tuition fee scholarships to you directly.
