Frequently asked questions

I’ve received scholarships from both SI and my university. What do I do?

If you receive an SI scholarship, you may not accept other scholarships. If you would like to accept your SI scholarship, you will be required to decline other scholarship offers.

I didn’t receive a scholarship. What other sources of funding are available to me?

See University scholarships and Other scholarships for ideas on finding additional sources of funding.

Why wasn’t my application chosen?

We receive a large volume of highly-qualified applications each year, and make a selection based on many factors. This includes an evaluation of your full application (letter of motivation, CV and recommendations where relevant) and careful consideration of the entire group of applicants so that scholarships are given on a balanced basis to students from different countries, universities and subject areas. We are unfortunately not able to offer individual feedback on why a specific application was not selected for a scholarship.
