Hi there,

I have linked here some more information about the Universities Undergraduate International merit scholarship. On summary this scholarship covers 50% of tuition fees and is available for 75 students each year, there is a range of eligibility requirements for the scholarship which you can view on the website. There is some advice on how to apply and what they are looking for in applications too :smile:

Best of luck & Let me know if I can help with anything else!

Thank you so much Alisha. This was so helpful. It would be impossible for me to be there if I don’t get financial assistance.

I emailed them but they are saying that they have updated their Scholarships portal recently and it may take some time for accepting application for scholarships. I am facing a technical glitch while doing so. Has your scholarship portal opened?

I applied for mechanical engineering and got my offer on 10 Nov. But, I am not being able to apply for the scholarship. It says "This scholarship is not available to Applicants which your University account is associated with". Can you tell me what does this mean?

I am getting the same message reflected on screen. Wrote so many emails to their team. The issue hasn’t resolved yet. They are saying that the portal might take some time.

do you have to write any essay to apply for the scholarship?

I don’t know as of yet. I got an email from Finance Team. They said that one has to confirm the place and make Tuition fee deposit plus some other documentation before one can apply for scholarships.
This is really upsetting because I can’t confirm a place until and unless I know that I have the scholarship.

Hi both,

Hope you are well. Unfortunately I don't know much more about the International merit scholarship to answer all your questions. I believe you are required to write an application for the scholarship and on the University site I linked previously there is a list of selection criteria therefore I would recommend trying to include these in your application. You can also contact other students from the University of Sheffield, here you may be able to find a student who has experience with this scholarship to find out a bit more information, I have linked here to the 'chat to students' page. where there are other international students.

I hope this helps out a bit, best of luck with your applications!
