Applicants must complete the application materials and submit them to APSC by December 1. The APSC Scholarship Application* and the APSC Reference Forms* should be filled in on your computer and sent to apsconsortium@gmail.com. Your materials will be processed more quickly if completed in this manner, but hand-written or scanned copies of these documents are acceptable only if you have difficulties completing these documents electronically. The application materials required for this program are as follows:

  1. APSC Scholarship Application*.
  2. One academic letter of reference (using the APSC Reference Form*).
  3. One professional letter of reference (using the APSC Reference Form*).

Shortlisted applicants will be contacted for an interview and selection exam. The exam will be an ITP TOEFL test but will include an additional essay component. Based on an applicant's interest, the shortlisted applications will be recommended for submission to a university from within APSC. This decision will be made by the selection committee. Applicants may be asked to complete a further application, depending on the entrance requirements of the selected university. Applicants do not need to apply to universities directly under this program. Masters courses will start between May and September, depending on the prospective university. Support will be provided for all logistics related to travel and registration at the respective universities.
