Visa is designed to recognise the power of difference and diversity of thought. The program values every individual for their unique background, experiences and view of the world.
Therefore, in partnership with the Windsor Fellowship, the visa scholarship is designed as part of the commitment to this belief as reported on Windsor Fellowship website.
The programme is designed to support students from under-represented and socially disadvantaged backgrounds to achieve their full potential. This opportunity is open to eligible students who are applying or intending to enrol as a full-time undergraduate in any accredited university in the UK. You’ll receive a scholarship of up to £9200 per year to pay your tuition fees and an ongoing programme of support throughout your academic study.
