* The detailed schedule for IELTS Study USA Scholarship will be announced on this page shortly. 

Am I eligible?

You can apply for the IELTS Study USA Scholarship Programme if you live in Korea and are due to begin undergraduate or postgraduate study in the USA in 2013, as long as:

  • your US higher education institution accepts IELTS for admissions
  • you can provide an acceptance letter from the institution by 30 June 2013
  • you have a valid IELTS score

What should I do if my university is not listed as accepting IELTS?

If your US university is not currently listed as accepting IELTS, we recommend that you contact it directly. In some cases institutions have not yet been added to the list.

If this is the case, we will accept an email between you and an admissions officer as proof that your institution accepts IELTS.

What is a valid IELTS score?

You have a valid IELTS score if:

  • you took your IELTS test at the British Council after July 2012
  • you took the IELTS Academic (rather than IELTS General Training)
  • you achieved a minimum band score average of 6.5 for undergraduates or 7.0 for postgraduates

What can I do if I don’t have an IELTS score yet?

We are holding a special IELTS test session on Saturday 11 May 2013 for scholarship applicants.
