Convera Scholarship (formerly Western Union Scholarship)

Academic year 2024

Overview

This scholarship was established by a generous donation from Convera who is trusted by more than 800 institutions, including 8 of the top 10 ranked universities globally, to provide easy international payment solutions for students. Whether you are paying for tuition or accommodation, Convera provides a range of international payment options and allows you to pay in your local currency so you know exactly how much the transaction will cost you. Valued at a portion of the income on the endowment, it will be awarded annually to an international student who is entering their first year of full-time study in any undergraduate degree program at any campus of Memorial University of Newfoundland.

Recipients must meet the minimum academic requirements for a scholarship as defined by the University. This scholarship is renewable for an additional three (3) years, provided the recipient continues in an undergraduate program and maintains scholarship standing. In the event that the recipient is completing a degree that requires five (5) years of study, then the scholarship can be renewed for a fourth additional year. A new recipient will be selected only when the previous student completes their eligibility. This scholarship will be awarded by the Senate Committee on Undergraduate Scholarships, Bursaries and Awards on the recommendation of the Assistant Registrar, International Admissions.

"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."

"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!
