Scholarships and Financial Aids


If you are in high school and are about to enter the next stage of your education in obtaining a diploma or bachelor degree, most probably you will be considering whether your family has the means to pay for your three to five years of education. Maybe you have obtained your first degree and are thinking of pursuing a master's degree but find it hard to get the fund.

The rising cost of education worldwide is hampering many good students from pursuing their dreams of obtaining skills and knowledge in your field of interest. Many go hunting for "good bargain" in various universities in the world that offer good degree, master or doctorate program that are affordable.

Pause a while and think. Have you ever consider applying for scholarship, financial aids, grants or student awards? There are many organisations, universities, goverments, and non- governmental organisations which offered many of these aids to deserving students to enable them to pursue their dreams.

However, it is not easy to obtain an award unless one is good in his/her studies, participated in extra curriculum activities, sports activities, community works etc. If you are still in high school, it is still not too late to involve yourself in the various activities without neglecting your studies.

The links below are based on the countries of study that are offering aids to deserving students. Why not give it a try...
