Hi everyone. I was recently accepted at the University of Hull in the UK to do an MA in Translation with TESOL. I'm a Colombian citizen (international student) and I'm currently looking into possible scholarships/grants to fund my studies in the UK for one year.

Are there any organizations that offer scholarships to students who are looking to do a graduate degree in Translation studies? If so, I'd be interested in applying.

Appreciate any help!

Have you contacted the university? May 9, 2015

That must be the first place to enquire.

I suppose you're talking about a course starting in autumn 2015. If so, it's too late for the Chevening scholarships: http://www.chevening.org/colombia/ But that might be an avenue if it's for the 2016 entry.

Does this apply to you (loan only)? http://www.internationalscholarships.com/898/Colfuturo-Loan|scholarship

And this site looks useful: http://www.ie.edu/financial-aid/master-students/scholarships-fellowships/ie-scholarships

And you might be able to convince this one that your studies will be useful for the development of Colombia - translation and TESOL are both useful in a way so it should be possible: http://www.scholars4dev.com/4021/ofid-scholarships-in-international-development/

As you can see, I don't really have any knowledge, though I do proofread a lot of texts in this field (none of which seem to have any real use in your exact situation, I'm afraid); I'm just searching the web.

Thanks May 11, 2015

I've already applied to Colfuturo. I receive a response at the end of June. I'm also applying to an international student scholarship that the university offers. Thanks for the link to the scholarship in international development, but the deadline already passed and I'm also a few years over the age limit so I wouldn't have qualified

Thank you for your help Sheila. Should you happen to come across any scholarships in the areas of Translation or TESOL, I would be eternally grateful
