Ucfb Scholarship Essays

Great news! Several of Across the Pond’s excellent partner universities are offering scholarships that are exclusive to students who use Across the Pond’s services. While these universities regularly offer scholarships to international students, the universities listed below wish to give Across the Pond applicants an additional funding opportunity via our Across the Pond Partner Scholarships. Even more great news—Across the Pond itself is also funding four scholarships than can be used at any of our partner universities. You can apply for both the Across the Pond Partner Scholarships and Across the Pond’s own scholarships.

The Across the Pond Partner Scholarships are quite different from the typical scholarship.  We want to give students the opportunity to have fun with their applications.  Therefore, instead of the traditional scholarship essay, we have created a new video competition for these opportunities.

Please tell us why you deserve this scholarship in a creative and engaging way. We want to you to share your excitement and enthusiasm for your upcoming studies in the United Kingdom. Also, tell us what makes you stand out as an applicant!

You’ll be required to submit a 2 to 4 minute video that helps us understand why your chosen university program is the right fit for you.  What do you think you’ll get out of the opportunity? If you have a great need for scholarship funding in order to be able to study in the UK, you are welcome to mention that as well.

If you’re a semi-finalist, your video will be posted to Across the Pond’s voting pages. You’ll then want to share it with your family and friends to get votes. The video(s) for each scholarship opportunity with the most votes by May 25th will win!

PLEASE NOTE: Across the Pond Scholarship winners must hold an offer from one of our partner universities in order to actually claim the prize.  The winners of the university-specific scholarships must hold an offer from the university to which the scholarship belongs in order to claim the prize.  Across the Pond students are eligible for both the Across the Pond scholarship and a university-specific scholarship.
