Scholarships

Mock

Money matters! That's what makes students and their parents run from pillar to post, if they get through a foreign university. As, paucity of funds can bring overseas dreams to halt.

Studying abroad is undoubtedly an expensive proposition. From showing a minimum amount of liquid assets in order to get a visa to making ends meet in foreign land, the pull on your pocket is too much. There are many ways of raising funds for studying aboard. Of course, study loans given by various banks is one of them. But that only serves a part of the problem.

Scholarships provided by various foreign universities are increasingly becoming a lucrative way of fund raising for prospective students. So much so that, many Indian students are opting for unusual subjects just to bag a scholarship.

Universities in the US, for example have their own institutional scholarships which are given to deserving candidates. Scholarships could be need-based, that is depending on a student's financial background, and non-need based. But one pre-requisite for availing a scholarship in any country is to have a good track record and high GPA. Who does not have good GPA they can try and make up for the deficiency by scoring well in the standardized examinations like GRE and TOEFL. Apart from that, extra-curricular activities, projects and presentations could also give a candidate an edge in terms of deserving financial aid.

Once a student gets into a foreign university, fund management becomes faily easy, provided the student is willing to put in some extra work. Performing well in the first semester, a student can fetch a sufficient amount of credit exemption, sometimes even a full fee waiver. In fact, there are a number of students who complete a two year masters course in one year by getting good grades and putting in extra study hours. That way they save the tuition fees of an entire year.

These are some useful web links to get some aid.
