A STUDENT’S GUIDE TO OBTAINING SCHOLARSHIPS IN 2020


Whether you are planning to study abroad or in an Indian university, education has become an inherently costly affair for most. Despite the steep costs surrounding quality education, it is an investment worth every penny.


If you are a student harboring a single-minded determination to succeed in your respective field, we have the right tools to lighten your financial burdens on the education front.


In this blog post, we’ll touch upon the ways of seasoned students turned successful personalities, who have benefitted from various scholarships/grants around the world and show you how YOU can do the same.


1. Create a Spreadsheet of Scholarship Options

With countless scholarships and grants being funded by universities and institutions around the world, a capable student is spoilt for choices.


Before mailing out your applications for the scholarship of your desire, conduct thorough research on all the funding opportunities available in your area of study.


Create a spreadsheet with the necessary information about various scholarship options, along with eligibility criteria and other necessary requirements.


2. Learn to Identify Scholarships That Often Go Unnoticed

While arranging your list of scholarship/grant options in your personal spreadsheet, you’ll come across some choices that are less popular than others.


These are options less frequented by students and offer more chances of acceptance as there are considerably fewer applicants competing to win the aid.


3. Apply In Multiple Places

Armed with a list of prospective scholarship choices, you should now prepare your application. The main thing to remember when applying for the scholarship is that it does not have to be singular.


Aim to obtain multiple scholarships/grants and prepare your application with the intent of being accepted by all.


Do not limit yourself to a singular option and lose out on the opportunity to obtain financial add-on from other places. Regardless of whether the scholarship amount will cover your entire tuition fee or partly lighten the burden, it is bound to be of help.


With all that has been said, you may wonder, so where do I find the availability of scholarships.


Well, there are many sources and some of them are:

- The financial aid office at a college or career school

- Merit-based scholarships that have specific requirements of scores.

- Sports Scholarships.

- Foundations, Community Organizations, local businesses, or civic groups

- Organizations (including professional associations) related to your field of interest


Each scholarship has its own requirements. So make sure you go through the eligibility criteria and see if you are eligible to get the scholarship or financial aid.
