Scholarship details

Educate the Planet scholarships are funded by the education foundation in cooperation with Educate the Planet partner organisations. Scholarships are provided to applicants with leadership skills and an intent to study programmes at acclaimed universities, colleges and schools in UK and other countries.   

The scholarship programme was founded in 2015 and is expected to develop into a global scale education project. Students from more than 100 countries and states worldwide are expected to come.

Educate the Planet programme offers full and partially funded scholarships for full-time, part-time and online study courses across a variety of programme types, levels and specialisations. A programme gives access to one-year study at a diploma or degree study, one online programme or two-week study at a language programme in any subject.  

Educate the Planet scholarships are offered in positive partnership with global leaders and influencers to support low- and middle-income scholars who want to acquire education internationally.
