A total of three winners will be selected through a competitive application process in each country to receive a cash prize to support their studies.
Country Director British Council Pakistan, Amir Ramzan, said: “Our IELTS Prize winners have taken what they have learned from their studies abroad and applied it to benefit their communities. With over 15,000 IELTS tests delivered in the past year, we have directly benefitted these candidates who in turn have benefitted tens of thousands more.”
