British Universities Transatlantic Exchange Association (BUTEX) Scholarships

Website: BUTEX


Each year BUTEX awards a number of scholarships to students studying abroad for either a semester or for a whole academic year. This includes students planning to study abroad in the UK and vice versa.

BUTEX scholarships are based on a calendar year and not the academic year. Students that have a placement that will take place across two calendar years will be able to apply in each year, but please note individuals can only win a BUTEX scholarship once.

The value of each scholarship is £500 and will be paid to the winners once they have arrived and registered at their host university.

BUTEX will also make a special award in honour of our late Treasurer, the Tony Emmerson Award. This scholarship will be awarded in the event of an American Studies student being successful in the competition. This award will also be for £500.


The Scholarship is open to all undergraduate students who are affiliated to a BUTEX Full Member institution. You may be affiliated as an incoming or an outgoing study abroad student.

If you are not sure whether either your home or your host institution are BUTEX-affiliated, please check our list of BUTEX members. Many UK universities are members (though not Oxford or Cambridge).
