Jim Duncan Scholarships

Academic year 2020
Amount £2,500
Aberdeen, Scotland

Overview

Summary

There are two Jim Duncan Scholarships available. They are open to applicants who have decided to go to the University of Aberdeen to undertake an undergraduate degree starting in September 2020 after having had a break in their education, or who are resuming their undergraduate studies at the University after an interruption, and require financial assistance.

Description

Each scholarship is valued at £2,500 per annum. The scholarships shall initially be awarded for a two year period of the undergraduate course in order to give security to the scholar awarded. Thereafter, the scholar may apply to have the scholarship renewed on an annual basis. The scholarships will be awarded on the basis of financial need and academic potential.

Eligibility

The Jim Duncan Scholarships are open to applicants who have decided to go to the University of Aberdeen to undertake an undergraduate degree starting in September 2020 after having had a break in their education, or who are resuming their undergraduate studies at the University after an interruption and require financial assistance. The scholarships are open to all applicants regardless of nationality or fee status. Applications from medical students would be particularly welcome.

To be considered for a Jim Duncan Scholarship you will need to have applied to the University of Aberdeen for a place starting in September 2020; to be awarded a scholarship you must receive and then firmly accept an offer, either conditional or unconditional, of a place at the University. The scholarships can only be held by students of the University – they cannot be transferred to another institution. The only exception to the above is if you are resuming your undergraduate studies at the University of Aberdeen after an interruption.

Criteria

Scholarships are available for all full-time undergraduate areas of study, (MA, LLB, BSc, MSci, MChem, MEng, BEng, MBChB, Bachelor of Divinity, Bachelor of Theology, MA Primary Education, BMus), but not the PGDE education programmes.

Application Procedure

Please fill in the application form online, making sure you provide the name and email address of a suitable reference. Please see the Guidelines document below for full details. As the scholarships are awarded on the basis of financial need the Scholarship Panel expects to see supporting documentary evidence and your application will be unsuccessful if this is not provided.

Please note, the University also offers a range of scholarships through its Entrance Scholarship Scheme. Applicants are permitted to apply to this scheme in addition to the Jim Duncan scholarships noted above, but must complete the separate online application form. Students are only permitted to take up one scholarship from all of those offered by the University of Aberdeen prior to the commencement of study.

"SI-UK has been a crucial part of my UK journey. They assisted me in obtaining my bachelor's degree in August 2019 and now, they've aided me in securing admission to a top design university in London for my master's. The counselors at SI-UK offer personalised support to each applicant, helping us in each and every step including the final stage of obtaining our CAS letter once we receive the offer."

I am grateful to my counselor and the entire team for guiding me through the visa application process and every other aspect. Thank you, SI-UK, for helping me pursue my dream."

"Last year, I reached out to SI-UK, Jaipur for my Master’s journey, and it has been an incredibly fulfilling and successful experience. From guiding me through the application process to assisting with letters of recommendation and statement of purpose, and even following up with universities, SI-UK provided comprehensive support at every step of the journey. They went the extra mile, assisting with admissions, fee processing, accommodation arrangements, visa guidance, and coordination on medical checkups. I firmly believe that my admission to the University of Birmingham wouldn't have been possible without SI-UK. I highly recommend SI-UK to anyone seeking admission to a UK or Ireland university."

In September, I sought assistance from SI-UK for my studies in the UK, with a planned intake for January 2023. With the support of my counsellor who made exceptional efforts, I smoothly navigated the application process which culminated in the timely acquisition of my UK student visa hassle-free. I wholeheartedly endorse SI-UK to fellow students aiming to pursue their dreams of studying in the UK. Thank you!
