After a fierce scholarship competition, we are proud to post the winners of the scholarships available from Across the Pond and a selection of our partner universities.
Over sixty students submitted a creative and entertaining video telling us how excited they are about studying in the UK and how grateful they are for Across the Pond's support, and you can watch the winning videos at this link.
To provide insight into how these winners were chosen, the Across the Pond Scholarship Committee voted on each video using a voting rubic including ten criteria. We were looking for enthusiasm, creativity, specific reasons why these students want to study in the UK or at a specific British university, why Across the Pond was so helpful to them specifically, among other factors. If an entry achieved a high score after averaging the scores of the individual committee members, that student became a semi-finalist. Semi-finalist videos were then posted on our Facebook page, where the public at large could vote for their favorite video. The winners of that Facebook vote can be viewed at this link.
We enjoyed each video, the creativity of our students, and are confident that they will be successful and experience an exceptional year in the UK.
