For the academic semester 2022/2023, the University College London (UCL) is accepting applications for the Bowman Scholarships.
The Bowman Scholarships are for UK-based students from forced migration backgrounds who do not have the credentials or the resources to pursue an undergraduate degree.
Two brilliant students will get a complete cost waiver for the Undergraduate Preparatory Certificate (UPC), UCL’s International Foundation programme, on either the Sciences and Engineering (UPCSE) or the Humanities and Social Sciences (UPCH) track, thanks to the Bowman Scholarships. The UPC is a qualification that allows students to enroll in an undergraduate degree at UCL or other top-ranked UK universities.
University College London (UCL) is a public research university in London, United Kingdom, that has been operating under the official name of UCL since 2005. It is a part of the federal University of London and is the United Kingdom’s third-biggest university by overall enrollment and the largest by postgraduate enrolment.
Worth of Scholarship
Tuition at UPC is paid in full. For their UG development, Bowman scholars will also get ongoing academic and personal assistance, UCAS counseling, and scholarship signposting.
