Kingston University International Development Awards Scholarships 2024-2025

Kingston University International Development Awards Scholarships is inviting qualified applicants to apply for their annual scholarships that are given to brilliant but needy students facing difficulty in continuing their education. This article brings to the notice of all applicants the steps and guidelines as well as requirements needed in applying successfully for the scholarship.

International Development awards are scholarships worth £5,000 to successful international applicants joining us in January for their first year of study. Our international scholarships are partial scholarships. They are not guaranteed, nor offered automatically. They need to be applied for. This means that you must make sure you can cover the outstanding amount for fees and living expenses yourself.
