The myth around scholarship is that only toppers from different spheres of life gets scholarship. But let’s not argue that toppers deserve these scholarships based on certain criteria. But Overseas Education Scholarships are not restricted to toppers alone. Most Study Abroad Student Scholarships fall under following four major types:
- Need based Scholarships (for financially backward students mostly with good/decent academic records)
- Student Specific Scholarships (generally based on caste, religion, gender or similar grounds)
- University/College Scholarships (it can be Merit based or other criteria as mentioned by university)
- Company Based Sponsorship (Professionals working in companies get full sponsorship in the pretext of coming back and joining the same company)
The above mentioned types of scholarships cover almost 90% of total scholarships awarded to Study Abroad aspirants. Hence students seeking admission for overseas education mustn’t lose hope and do research thoroughly to take advantage of these wonderful scholarship options.
