If you want to get international scholarships, one of the most important things you must do is Personal Research (PR). Dedicate time to read ALL the details about the scholarships you want to apply for. When carrying out your personal research on scholarships, look out for:
- Application process
- Course content
- The goals of the funding organisation
- What the scholarship covers
- The terms and conditions
You can go further and use Google to search for information on how to get that scholarship. Example: If you search – How to get Chevening scholarship, you will see videos and articles for tips on how to apply and win a Chevening scholarship.
Look at it this way, will you start a business without carrying out an extensive research?
I thought as much! That is the same analogy with scholarships. You need to invest time in personal research and professional networking so you can submit a competitive application that will convince an organization to ‘dash’ you thousands of Dollars.
I hope this helps and motivates you to dedicate time for your scholarship application. See you in the next post.
