Scholarship applicants – what happens now?

If you applied to the first round of the Go Abroad for Summer Programme (closing date 1 March), note that we are in the final stages of reviewing applications and you will receive the results the week beginning 20 March 2017. The review has been extended as we are looking to secure extra funds to give as many students the opportunity of a Scholarship.

If you have applied for the second round of applications you will find out the result by the end of March.

The next steps

If you have been successful, the next steps are:

  1. Complete the application for the summer school you identified on your summer school scholarship application. Don’t miss their deadlines!
  2. Once you have your offer letter (proof from the international University that you have a place) then send this to our Go Abroad team (GoAbroad@glasgow.ac.uk).
  3. The team will then arrange for the University of Glasgow to pay the scholarship using the MyCampus system.
  4. You will be required to provide evidence of completion of the Summer School. If the host University does not issue you with a transcript, we can provide a form for you to get your host university to stamp and sign. If you do not submit a scanned copy of your Summer School transcript or the signed form by the end of August 2017, you will be required to repay the scholarship.
