Last year I applied to The School of GeoSciences Head of School Scholarships. This year, the application deadline is 14 June 2014 and you can download the application form here: http://www.ed.ac.uk/schools-departments/student-funding/postgraduate/international/science-engineering/head-geos
It’s a very easy application and I found out I had been selected for the award mid-July, which was a very pleasant surprise! It was great to be recognized by the university and to feel a bit less financial stress for the school year. I’m very thankful for opportunities such as this provided by the University of Edinburgh.

As a Canadian international student undertaking research in Canada, I wish I had known about The Foundation for Canadian Studies in the United Kingdom that offers bursaries for travel and research. Their application deadlines are a bit earlier, so check the site frequently.
