Hello. I could't finish my applicant survey. It stops about 55% and do not me allow to go
further. How should I proceed?

Hi Laura, after i submit my essay will I also receive a confirmation email? or will it just be announced on the website?

Hi Sade, I'm afraid we don't send confirmation emails to all entrants, however you will be contacted if you're shortlisted and chosen as the winner. We will also announce the winner with an article on the site. :)

Hello! Kind of confused here - I attended the event, completed the survey, and applied for 2 scholarships via this website (academic excellence and leadership scholarships) - but never got a confirmation e-mail or any other confirmation that my applications were received. I as well mailed to scholarships@ and web-support@ to get some help on checking that, but never got any feedback on that. Really confused, can u help me out with that and check?

Hi Laura, could a candidate submit two different essays for the same scholarchip?

Hi Efren, please only submit one application essay per scholarship. Best of luck!

Hi Laura, can MBA students apply to this scholarship? The description appears to contradict itself on this point.

Hi Dana. This scholarship is only for non-MBA graduate programs (ie. other master's degrees or PhD programs). We offer MBA scholarships over on our sister site, TopMBA.com.

Hi,
I wonder that is it possible to apply for "QS leadership scholarship" and "Academic Excellence" at the same time? I've attended QS World Grad Schools this year and already got admitted by ESSEC Advanced Master program for 2016 intake. So I would like to know which scholarship am I eligible to apply?

Many thanks!
Claire

Hi. I am new here. Suggest me to get a scholarship in Australia, US or Canada in Forensic Psychology.

Hi. I am new here. Suggest me to get a scholarship in Australia, US or Canada in Forensic Psychology.

I'm only in my third year of a four-year honours program, and am looking at Grad Schools early to make sure I have time to see all my options. Am I still eligible to apply for scholarships this year, or do I have to wait until next year when I'm applying to grad schools?

Hello!

Has the winner of this scholarship been chosen/announced yet?

Hello, where can I find the dates and places where the QS World Grad School Tour fairs will be held?
Many Thanks
Juliana

Hi Juliana. You can find all the QS World Grad School Tour locations and dates here. We'll look forward to seeing you at an event soon!

Dear Laura,

Today is the last day of June - will the results be posted today?

Thank you,

Vera

Hi Vera, I've just recieved word that the winner's name will be published next week on the site, I'm so sorry for the delay. Laura

They haven't updated this page yet ( https://www.topuniversities.com/student-info/scholarship-winners ) but I guess if we haven't been contacted yet we may not have been selected (ಥ_ʖಥ)
I wonder what the winner's essay looked like though

Hi,

I've uploaded an essay as part of my application which was successful , but I didn't get any information on the outcome of it. I am afraid you haven't received it and so I may not participate in the competition for the scholarship.
Could you please inform me on it? I didn't receive any reply to my letter to the QS team.

Thanks,

Alex

Hi Alex, I apologize that your letter recieved no reply. At this time of the year however QS is inundated with scholarship queries and at present there are not enough team members to deal with all the requests and questions. Email confirmation was also not set up for all applicants, which is why you may not have received any word from QS on your application's status. The winners will be announced at the end of the month and will be contacted directly, but you may also check on this website for the names of the winners. If you still have a query after this time, please email [email protected]

Thanks,

Laura

Hello,
Will the winners of the scholarships only be posted here or will every applicant receive e-mails with the results (either positive or negative)?
Thank you.

Hi Natalia, the winners of the scholarship will be contacted directly, but if you haven't heard anything by the end of June, you should presume your application was unsuccessful. Fingers crossed! L

When are the winners announced for this scholarship?

Hi Magdalena, the winners will be announced in June, although the exact day isn't yet available. Laura

Hello,
