Edinburgh Global Undergraduate Mathematics Scholarships

Scholarships available to Mathematics students of outstanding ability from countries outside the European Union, for the academic session 2019-2020.


The scholarships are worth either £1,000, £5,000 or £10,000 per year and are tenable for the duration of the programme of study, subject to satisfactory academic progress.

A student is deemed to have made Satisfactory Progress in each year if there has been a formal School decision of either “Progress” or “Conditional Progression”, without the student needing to repeat a year. If a student does not make satisfactory progress in any one year, the award will terminate from that point onwards.


Scholarships are awarded to applicants from countries outside the European Union who are accepted for full-time admission to an undergraduate degree programme offered by the School of Mathematics at the University.

The scholarship is not available to students already on programme. It is also not available to students studying Mathematics as part of a degree programme hosted by another School within the University.

Applicants should have applied to the University of Edinburgh through the University and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS), but do not need to have received an offer in order to begin the scholarship application process.


The scholarship is competitive and based on academic merit.


The application deadline for this scholarship has now passed. Successful applicants from this cycle will be notified shortly.
