    1. Hi @Saidu, Study & Scholarships is only an online resource of scholarships and scholarship providers. We do NOT offer scholarships of our own, at least for now.
      To apply for a scholarship into a good UK school, you will need to search in order to decide on a course(s) and school(s) of interest to you. Then you will need to apply to as many scholarships as interests you.
      You may want to start with our 'Search Page' or the official Google 'Search engine'. Goodluck!
