St Mary’s University, Twickenham has expanded its International Scholarship Scheme, providing help to more international students than ever before for the 2014/2015 academic year. Seven new undergraduate scholarships will be introduced alongside existing postgraduate grants, with each one worth £1,000 and offered to students who demonstrate excellence in a variety of areas. Three scholarships are on offer for applicants with the best academic results, which takes into account their overall marks in their most recently awarded qualification. Alongside that is a bursary offered to the student with the best sports performance, and one for a non-native English applicant with the best English language skills. Further to the grants that reward academic and sporting skill, St Mary’s is also offering two scholarships that include ambassadorial roles within the University. The first of these is the Chaplaincy Ambassador scholarship, which aims to appoint an international student who can maintain the Catholic ethos of St Mary’s and embrace the Chaplaincy’s traditional role of student support and pastoral care. Meanwhile, the successful candidate for the International Students’ Union Ambassador scholarship will assist the Students’ Union in organising events and activities, and will help create a link between home students and those from overseas. St Mary’s Communications Officer for the International Office, Rebecca Smith commented, “We are pleased to be able to build on our already very successful International Scholarship Scheme for the next academic year. We envisage the new scheme helping a wider range of people, promoting international student engagement and enhancing the student experience.” Each scholarship requires applicants to submit a personal statement explaining their study and career objectives, as well as proof of their achievements in the cases of best academic and sporting results. The St Mary’s International Scholarship Scheme will continue to offer 12 postgraduate bursaries of £3,000 alongside the new undergraduate grants for the start of the 2014/15 academic year.
