UK announces new funding for scholarships
A statement from the UK embassy on Wednesday said the £32.2m ($53m) worth of additional funding would take effect in time for the 2015/16 academic year.
It represents a significant boost for a scholarship programme which has gone from strength to strength since its establishment in 1983.
Awards are typically for a one-year Master’s degree, in any subject and at any of Britain’s leading universities.
