Open Society Institute/ Foreign and Commonwealth Office Chevening/ University of Warwick 2010-11

The scholarships, which are offered for a period of twelve months, are to enable scholars to pursue a taught postgraduate course at the University of Warwick.
Each scholarship provides twelve months’ tuition fees at the University of Warwick, a stipend to cover living costs (for one person only) and return air travel from the scholar’s home country. On completion of the scholarship, scholars will return to their home countries.

Eligible Countries

The scholarships are open to applicants from Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Moldova and Mongolia.

Eligible Subjects

Scholarships are available from September 2010 for all Master's courses in the Faculties of Social Sciences.

The funding does not cover Master's courses offered by the Warwick Business School, including MBA, MPA, all Medical School, the 2-year MA in Social Work or part-time courses.

Criteria Applicants will normally be expected to:

  • A. be nationals of, and resident in one of the selected countries during the academic year in which they apply for the award; applicants who are temporarily out of the country (for a total period of less than three consecutive months) may be treated as being resident;
  • B. display intellectual ability and leadership potential;
  • C. already hold (or expect to hold by the time of taking up the award) a degree of an equivalent standard to a good UK second-class Honours degree;
  • D. have passed an appropriate English language test by the time of taking up the award. The University would expect candidates to have normally achieved at the time of taking up the award a score of TOEFL 600 (Paper based), TOEFL 250 (Computer based), TOEFL (Internet based 92) or IELTS 6.5;
  • E. not have already received or be currently receiving financial benefit from a previous HMG fully funded Scholarship;
  • F. return to their home country at the end of their scholarship period to continue their studies / work there.

Preference will be given to applicants who have not previously studied outside of their home country.

Application Process

Only the application forms provided by the Bilim Educational Advising Centres should be used. These are deliberately different from the University’s standard forms in order that they are easily recognised at the University of Warwick as a competition application. If applicants use standard forms provided by the University there is a danger they could be treated as a normal application. The completed forms and other documents must be returned to Bilim Educational Advising Center at the address below by 29 January 2010 at the latest. APPLICATIONS RECEIVED AFTER THE CLOSING DATE WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.

A completed application must include:

  • (a) Three copies of the completed application form and support materials.
  • (b) Two referees' reports in signed and sealed envelopes.
  • (c) Transcripts of undergraduate and any postgraduate study. If the Transcript is not in English you must provide a translation bearing an official stamp. Applicants may not translate transcripts themselves.
  • (d) Applicants for courses in the English Department should include two pieces of written work on a literary topic previously submitted as part of your Undergraduate degree.

ONLY COMPLETE APPLICATIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED.
Please note that you are only permitted to apply for one course of study at the University.

Selection Procedure

a) Your local Soros Educational Advising Center or Foundation will forward the applications to the University of Warwick. Academic staff at the University will compile a short-list.
b) Short-listed applicants will be invited for an interview and an English language test in their home country in April 2010. You should be available for interview at any point during this period of time. You will be informed by the EAC or Foundation in early April 2010 whether you have been short-listed or not.
c) Interviews will be carried out by representatives of Open Society Foundation, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the University of Warwick.
d) The final awards will be decided jointly by the University, FCO and OSF. Candidates will be informed in mid-June. Certain candidates may be offered reserve places for scholarships, which means that there is a possibility that they will be given a scholarship, if one of the successful candidates withdraws from the program. The scholarship period begins in late September 2010.

Please note that the staff at Bilim Educational Advising Center is not involved at all in the decision-making process. They will tell you as soon as they can whether or not you have been successful. Please understand they will not be able to inform you until they have been told by the University of Warwick and OSF.

Please note that all successful applicants will be invited to attend a one-month preparatory academic writing summer school in July or August 2010. The Network Scholarship Programs’ (NSP) Pre-Academic Summer Program is designed to prepare NSP grantees for a successful academic experience in the UK. Successful applicants will be provided with the opportunity to refine their research and writing skills through intensive courses in academic writing and social sciences. The exact date and location of the summer school will be available at a later stage in the selection process.
