Frequently asked questions

What does QS World Merit Scholarships stand for?

We’re  QS, and we are the leading network for careers and education. Our mission is to enable motivated people anywhere in the world to fulfil their potential through educational achievement, international mobility, and career development. One of the ways we help is through our QS Scholarships platform. In 2020 this merged with the World Merit charity organization, and now offers joint scholarships. These are our QS World Merit (QS WM) Scholarships.

What is the difference between scholarships funded by an institution or by QS World Merit?

A scholarship by an institution is completely sponsored by them, therefore you must be applying for that institution to be eligible. You must be accepted to study there to win the scholarship. Further eligibility criteria and requirements vary by scholarship.

QS World Merit Scholarships are offered jointly between the World Merit charity organization and us at QS. You can be admitted to any institution on the appropriate study level to be considered. Take a look at the further eligibility criteria on the respective scholarship.

Can I apply for more than one scholarship?

Yes, you can apply for as many scholarships as you wish. Just make sure that you meet the eligibility criteria and follow the application process for each.

Who evaluates my application and who will announce the winner?

Scholarships by institutions are managed by the school, university or collage offering the scholarship and the winner will also be announced by them. QS World Merit Scholarships are managed by us here at QS and we’ll announce the winner
