Launched in partnership with the British Council and the UK government’s GREAT Britain Campaign, the GREAT Scholarships for a Sustainable Future scheme offers scholarships to qualifying students from Egypt, Nigeria, Pakistan, Turkey and Vietnam to undertake postgraduate taught studies in the UK from autumn 2021 in climate change related courses.

The GREAT Scholarships for a Sustainable Future are designed to widen access to climate change courses in the UK and create a cohort of young spokespeople for positive change. They will enable 26 international environmentally minded students to advance their education in the UK and be well positioned to pursue green jobs, supporting delivery of transformational change.

This scholarship scheme is part of a global cultural relations programme being led by the British Council to add value to COP26 (the United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties), which the UK is hosting in Glasgow in November 2021. This will be the largest international climate change summit the UK has hosted, bringing together over 30,000 delegates including heads of states, climate experts and campaigners to agree coordinated action to tackle climate change.
