The deadline for applications has now passed. If you have applied for this scholarship we will let you know the outcome of your application, if you have been successful or not, by the end of May 2022.  

Terms and conditions

As this is partially funded by the University of Sussex, it is not possible to combine this with other Sussex scholarships (for example, the Country Scholarships which includes the Sussex India Scholarship, Sussex Turkey Scholarship etc.). Applicants can apply for multiple scholarships but it is only possible to receive one, normally the highest value award

The Chancellor's International Scholarship is not available for applicants to the University of Sussex Business School or School of Engineering & Informatics, as there are School-specific Chancellors Scholarships available that you can apply for.
