Want to learn how to get a scholarship in 2015/2016? Take your time to read this article and follow the links given!

There are many scholarships available than you may think. Scholarships differ from loans in that they offer free money. You can therefore expect stiff competition for most scholarships.

It is worth your time and effort to seek out the relevant scholarships and apply for them. Start looking for scholarships and grants months before you need them. If you are a postgraduate student, you can apply for fellowships which are scholarships for graduate students.

You also need to know what to expect from a scholarship when you apply for it. Some scholarships are fully funded, others are partial. Plan to wait for several weeks or months to find out whether you got the scholarship.

The best way to obtain a scholarship is to do a thorough research in this website. There is no short cut. You need to click on almost every link, read through and find out if you qualify. Apply for many scholarships; you can never apply for too many!

How to Get a Scholarship: In the scholarships and grants section of this website, you will find many organizations, colleges and universities that offer scholarships. If you follow the links given, you will get their addresses and contact information.

All the scholarships in that section are offered annually. Some organizations may not have updated the website/application dates since the last deadline. They should answer you on any query in regard to this.

Each organization, college or university has its own criteria that a student must meet to be considered for the scholarship.

Once you have the contact information of the organizations, you must write to them and request an application. Some offer an online application. Ensure you send your request well ahead of the deadline.

How to Get a Scholarship: This website has many different kinds of scholarships and grants. There are primary and secondary school scholarships, undergraduate scholarships and numerous postgraduate scholarships. Scholarships aimed at particular groups of people include scholarships for the disabled, scholarships for women, and scholarships for Muslims.

Specialized scholarships include amongst others, LL.M Scholarships, MBA scholarships, scholarships for refugees as well as PhD and masters by research scholarships. There are also travel grants and emergency student funds in UK.

Some scholarships are tenable for study in Africa. These can be used by students studying in their local African universities and colleges.

For undergraduate scholarships, Huygens scholarship programme is one of the most attractive. Huygens scholarship programme is also applicable to postgraduate masters students.

Erasmus Mundus scholarships are fully funded scholarships for masters’ students. They are easy to get and cover all courses at master’s level.

Every subject of PhD and masters by research study are covered by the Overseas Research Scholarships (ORS). All you need to do is locate a university in UK offering your area of study and apply for the ORS scholarship in that University.

Similarly, the New Zealand development Scholarships and Australian Development Scholarships cover all areas of study for PhD and Masters by research students who want to study in those countries.

Besides clicking on every link available in this website, another way to get your scholarship is to use the onsite Google search facility.

Simply type in the scholarship you are interested in plus other words that describe exactly what you want. e.g. scholarship + public health or scholarship + LLM etc. Google will bring you the appropriate scholarship results. Try that in the search box below.


However, you may still miss out on other potentially good scholarships because you did not use words that have been used to describe the scholarship you want. The above method is therefore suitable only as a supplementary to the individual check of each link in the website.

I have guided and helped hundreds of students to get their scholarships. I have seen several traits in all successful scholarship winners - dedication, persistence and hard work in looking for the right scholarship.

This is the best website covering scholarships for international students and scholarships for students in developing countries. It is updated daily. If a new scholarship has been announced, we most likely have it before anyone else.

Do a thorough, dedicated and persistent search in this website and you will be on your way to getting a scholarship in 2015/2016!
