Scholarships to Study Abroad
Quality education abroad is a goal pursued by many, but due to lack of funds, this thought becomes a little weak. This is when scholarships and other financial aids come into the picture. Scholarships provide you a common ground for competition irrespective of whether or not you are financially equipped. Financing your studies with scholarships is not easy, and you might get overwhelmed with so many options. An overseas education counselor provides you professional assistance to navigate your way to the right university. Here's how our career advisors can help you avail scholarships.
I. Identifying the Right Type
Merit Based Scholarships
The merit-based scholarships are offered by many federal and state governments, local business, professional organizations, large corporations and universities, social and religious organizations. These are usually based on academic merit. However, there are also many peculiar scholarships offered to students with exceptional skills, extracurricular achievements and interests, For example, sports-based scholarships are given to students who have proven records of excellence in any particular sport. The student need not enroll in a sport –based course to avail such scholarship. Our counselors help you identify your skills and accentuate them in your scholarship application.
Need Based Scholarships (Grant)
Many organizations and universities provide need based aid to academically eligible students coming from monetarily underprivileged backgrounds. These scholarships tend to be highly competitive for which the students have to demonstrate their financial need through factors like assets and income of the students and his/her family. If you have such financial need, our counselors help you to identify universities having lower tuition fees, generous financial aid or a combination of both.
