Check if you're eligible

To be eligible for a scholarship, you must be:

  • studying the International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma programme
  • on target to achieve a minimum predicted score of 43 overall (Faculty of Engineering only)
  • an international student paying the Overseas rate of tuition
  • applying for an undergraduate course within the Faculty of Engineering, the Faculty of Natural Sciences, or Imperial College Business School

Scholarships will be awarded to exceptional International Baccalaureate students who achieve academic excellence in their diploma programme.

How to apply

There is no formal application process or separate application form for the scheme.

Academically excellent IB applicants will be nominated for selection for this scholarship by the Imperial department to which they apply as part of the admission process. Nomination deadline is 5 April 2024 so you must have applied for an undergraduate course before your department makes the nominations.

These awards are for the highest achieving students. Academic merit and potential to succeed at Imperial will be taken into account during the nomination process.

When scholars will be notified

We will notify all scholarship recipients by 30 June 2024.
