    QS offers a number of scholarships through the partners it works with. The QS Academic Excellence Scholarship awards 10,000 USD to a Masters student, with the aim of promoting innovative ideas in different areas of study.

    • The deadline is 30 April 2021.
    • It is meant for students who are just starting their studies at the Masters level.
    • The scholarship will be granted based on the essay you submit as an application.

    It is largely a merit-based scholarship, as the essay will talk about your academic record and future plans. Only one person is awarded every year, and the recipient must use the money to pay the tuition fee.
