English-Speaking Union Scholarship


The English-Speaking Union, which operates through a network of 79 branches throughout the United States, seeks to promote scholarship and the advancement of knowledge through the effective use of English in an expanding global community. Successful applicants are extremely passionate about their field of study; they demonstrate compelling reasons why the unfolding of their thought requires a year of study in Britain. A crucial element of the application is the strength of the match between your academic preparation and the institution whose program of studies or research facilities you have identified.
