Scholarships for Overseas Education

The number of Scholarships available is very few and the candidates aspiring for it are many. So, the eligibility criteria are very strict. When applying for a scholarship following points should be borne in mind:

  • You must apply for your scholarship at least one year before your course starts. Deadlines vary, so you must check that you know what the deadline is before applying.
  • You should prepare your application very carefully using the correct application form and providing all the documents as per the checklist.
  • The application should be clear and concise.
  • Many of the grant-making bodies will only give small amounts of money, which would not cover the full cost of a course.
