The STF Scholarship Competition has several awards, which are partial tuition fee waivers. Students can win these awards by submitting an essay. The competition is open to students of all nationalities, although some nationalities have to write on different subjects than others. The scholarship is awarded on discretion of a Jury consisting of MEL Faculty and, occasionally, business executives.
Students must write an essay on the topic specified for their country. Essays must be between 3,000 and 4,000 words all-inclusive. Through the essay, the student should be able to demonstrate his/her academic potential and strong writing skills.
