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.

What does an exclusive scholarship mean?

An exclusive scholarship means that the scholarship is not advertised or available anywhere else but on our platform. To be eligible for these scholarships, you must attend one of our recruitment events (World Grad School Tour, World MBA Tour, Connect Masters, Connect MBA, STEM) as they are exclusively available for event attendees. Click here to register for an event for free.

What if a scholarship is not exclusive?

It means that the scholarship is advertised on other platforms and websites as well, and so are available to a wider audience. You don’t need to attend one of our events (World Grad School Tour, World MBA Tour, Connect Masters, Connect MBA, STEM, etc.) to apply (but we’d love to see you anyway).
