Awards International Students can apply for?


Are there any awards that International students can apply to? The only weak point of my application is that I do not have any international-level awards. I have 3 awards that I got in my school for academic performance but nothing else.

I'm not talking about scholarships or stem competitions but actual awards yk that aren't like crazy competitive (like 5 people win them or something). Thanks

Certainly! Here are some specific international awards that international students can apply to:

1. Fulbright Scholarship: While primarily known as a scholarship program, Fulbright also offers awards for international students in various fields, including arts, culture, and research.

2. Rhodes Scholarship: This prestigious award allows international students to study at the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom.

3. Chevening Scholarships: Offered by the UK government, Chevening Scholarships are awarded to outstanding international students to pursue postgraduate studies in the UK.

4. Erasmus Mundus Joint Master's Degrees: These are prestigious, integrated study programs offered by a consortium of European universities, which welcome international students.

5. Commonwealth Scholarships: Available to citizens of Commonwealth countries, including many international students, for postgraduate study in the UK.

6. UNESCO Prize for Girls' and Women's Education: This award recognizes outstanding contributions to girls' and women's education worldwide.

7. International Children's Peace Prize: Awarded annually to a child who has made a significant contribution to advocating for children's rights and improving their situation worldwide.

8. Queen's Commonwealth Essay Competition: Open to all citizens and residents of the Commonwealth countries, this competition recognizes the achievements of young writers.

These are just a few examples, and there are many more international awards available to students from around the world in various fields and disciplines.

I would recommend checking out these websites dedicated to these types of awards/scholarships:
