  • Scholarships : Studying abroad has been the dream of many students in India. The charm and warmth of studying in another country is immense. Not only this brings great glory to the relatives and acquaintances, it is a huge boost in your academic career. Universities abroad are providing education and exposure at a whole new level. Their standards of teaching and imparting knowledge are considered amongst the best and these universities are in demand the most. But given all this, there are certain barriers that come in front of any middle class family child that aspire to even think or take a shot at studying in a foreign country.
    Studying abroad means adapting to a whole new culture of studying and an entirely different life style that people follow there. But despite all this, single handily there is one thing that is standing between the students and their aspiration to study abroad is the huge fees that those highly rated colleges and universities demand. Not only is the tuition fee an issue, the cost of living there, having food and many other adaptations need a lot of resources. Any middle class family, from where most of the talented students come, cannot afford such huge demand of capital in one go. This becomes a problem in the future dreams of so many young and talented minds. Had they been given the opportunity, one doesn't know how good they would have ended up in the future, but the circumstances didn't suit them.
  • There are 5 types of study overseas scholarships that are well known in the mainstream:
    • Merit-Based: Merit Based aid originated as a result of top tier universities finding themselves in a bidding war for desirable students. Merit based awards are hence typically granted on the basis of academic, artistic, athletic or other extracurricular based superiority.
    • Need-Based: The predominant condition to be eligible for a Need-Based Scholarship is financial assistance. Student groups who originate from monetarily less fortunate backgrounds may be eligible for such study abroad scholarships. Although academic profiles may be considered, the primary concern and decision making process is based on the monetary well-being of the student's family. These study overseas scholarships may provide coverage ranging from full tuition fees to partial tuition fees, living costs or even the cost of books at times.
    • Student-Specific: These study overseas scholarships are largely granted to students with distinct characteristics that could range from race, gender, religion or even medical issues. They can be better classified as minority based scholarships as they strictly target minority groups that may be disadvantaged at some level and are given the opportunity to compete on common grounds through financial aid.
    • Career-Specific: Certain areas of study often come under financial aid provision to address supply shortages and the generic longer term outlook for careers stemming from those areas. Universities have an agenda to produce talent that will benefit employers to recruit talent that perform skilled tasks that otherwise may require outside options. Hence, students pursuing listed skill shortage areas may gain substantial financial assistance from various institutions.
    • College-Specific: Most institutions have certain core competencies that form the foundation for their research, education delivery and reputation. Hence, to enhance their ideologies and knowledge systems, universities introduce programmes and study abroad scholarships that are unique to their prestige. These scholarship opportunities are highly competitive and are awarded on the basis of various factors including academic, personal achievements, extra-curricular activities, overall profiles, etc. This is often awarded in the form of reduced tuition fees.
    Based on your merit, education counsellor match you to the right university. With extensive partnerships with colleges worldwide, we have all necessary resources to match talent with study overseas scholarships.
  • Free Education : Free education refers to education that is funded through taxation or charitable organizations rather than tuition funding. Free Education means either the Tuition Fee is ZERO or less than 500 Euros per year.
