Sneha Kashyap, an Indian national, is the winner of the Global Study Abroad Fair Scholarship, awarded by Keystone Education Group.
Sneha has been awarded $3000 for return flights to her study abroad destination: the UK. In the UK, she will study MA English & American Literature at the University of Kent. A passionate writer, Sneha specifically chose the University of Kent as it is located in Canterbury, home to literary greats such as Charles Dickens and Geoffrey Chaucer.
As someone who wants to work with English at an academic level, Sneha knew she would have to study in an Anglophone country in order to fulfil her ambition of becoming an author.
Sneha was attracted to the UK, one of the top five places to study abroad in the world, as, not only is it Anglophone, but it has been a long-standing dream of hers to live there. Her offer from the University of Kent, as well as this scholarship, are making that dream a reality.
Sneha's passion and her future plans align with the mission of the scholarship, which seeks to recognize students who will study abroad and can demonstrate enthusiasm for their chosen course, as well as clearly explain how it will shape the trajectory of their lives and careers. Sneha did just that.
"All of us on the study abroad team were very inspired by Sneha's story," says Joel Durston, Content Editor at Keystone Education Group, "We are very happy to be able to help her on her path to the University of Kent...and to help her improve literacy in her native India and around the world. We're excited to follow her journey, and we wish her the best of luck."
