Besides funding tuition fees, the scholarship will also contribute towards living expenses up to a maximum of GBP 25,000. Preference will be given to Goans.

The Goa Education Trust (GET) Scholarship was conceptualised by the industrious Dempo and Fomento groups from Goa with an aim to provide Goans an efficient medium to pursue the best available opportunities in education, in whichever academic fields they choose.

Comments Rob Lynes, director, British Council India, “We are happy to be a part of The Goa Education Trust Scholarship. The scholarship is aimed at supporting young Indian students to study in top universities in the UK. We continuously want to support the Indian students to enhance their skills by studying in the best UK universities. A lot of students have already benefitted from the Goa Education Trust Scholarship and we are positive that this year we’ll see a higher number of applicants.”

“The University of Durham is among the top three institutions in the UK that offer an MA in Applied Linguistics. Apart from having an excellent ranking, it has the best ratings for student support and satisfaction. The programme is meticulously structured, with a strong balance between theory and practise. Durham is a friendly student city, buzzing with a cosmopolitan culture. As a Harry Potter fan, it’s exciting to know that parts of the movies were filmed in the stunning Durham Cathedral. The GET scholarship was the clinching factor in my decision to move to the UK, and has contributed to one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life,” says Lara Velho GET scholar 2015 who is currently pursuing Applied Linguistic from The University of Durham, UK.

“This is the sixth edition of the Goa Education Trust, and to date we have been delighted to support 23 bright young Goans to access high quality UK education,” says Manjula Rao, assistant director Internationalising, Higher Education British Council.
