The Graduate Institute of International Development, Agriculture and Economics (GIIDAE) offers a diverse range of scholarships, including those offered by the School, the University, and by organisations outside of the University. These are offered to enable students to pursue their studies at Reading.

GIIDAE scholarships

These scholarships are open to applicants worldwide who have received an offer to study in one of GIIDAE's programmes. Applications will be accepted until the final eligibility date, as listed for each scholarship.

Applications from eligible candidates will be considered throughout the award period. You are encouraged to apply as soon as possible, as applications are assessed and scholarships awarded to eligible applicants as they are received. The average turnaround for a decision on an application is approximately three weeks.

Please note. Hundreds of applicants are competing for a limited number of awards that are subject to availability. If all the funding is allocated before the final eligibility date, we will post a notice to this effect on this website and through our social media accounts.
