The GSA has a range of scholarships available to new students starting Undergraduate or Postgraduate study in academic year 2024/25. If you have been given a Conditional or Unconditional offer of study at the GSA, you may be eligible to apply to our scholarship programme.

Some of our scholarships offer a contribution towards your tuition fees and others provide a maintenance grant to assist with your living costs while you study at the GSA. The value of the scholarship does not reflect the full cost of undertaking full-time study and, unless otherwise stated, the scholarships are for one academic year only.

The GSA scholarship application deadline for 2024/25 is Friday 31May 2024 at 16.00 hours GMT

Please check the GSA scholarship webpages on a regular basis before you submit your application. New scholarships can become available, and changes may be made to existing scholarships up to the application deadline date. GSA reserves the right to make variations to the scholarships available and to not award in any year.

How to apply for Scholarships

If you are eligible, you can apply for a maximum of two scholarships, and only one application form is required to apply for both scholarships. Scholarships are not awarded on a first come first served basis, but as there is a high demand, we cannot accept late applications. As the scholarship committees will be looking at a high number of applications, you should clearly explain why you need the funding and how it will support you to succeed with your studies at the GSA. Unless stated otherwise, scholarships will be awarded based only on the information you provide in your application form (and relevant supporting documents or artwork, where this is a requirement) so make sure everything is clear. Only applicants that meet all of the eligibility criteria of the scholarship(s) will be considered.

Scholarship applications will not be assessed until after the application deadline on 31 May 2024.

Most of our scholarships only require a completed application form and a copy of your Conditional or Unconditional offer letter/email. Others require supporting documents or an artwork image.

Do not send information that has not been specifically requested in the criteria for example; a CV, references, examples of your work or transcripts. The requirements are fully explained in the individual scholarship’s eligibility criteria.      

If you do send supporting documents, please email us clear copies and refrain from sending send zip files or pages documents. You should only email copies of documents that are required, the quantity of documents supplied will not increase your chance of an award. All documents must be in English and financial amounts translated to UK Pounds Sterling.
