Did you know that every year, lots of scholarships are given out to assist international students pursue their
education abroad? These scholarships are given by governments, NGO’s, individuals and organizations.
Most of these scholarships go back unclaimed because some students refuse to apply thinking that they cannot win such scholarships. But the truth is that anybody can get an award irrespective of his/her grade, race, gender or nationality. Scholarship committees look beyond these things, they tend to focus more on student’s scholarship essay or statement of purpose. I have written articles on how to prepare scholarship winning essays or statement of purpose in my previous posts, so check the archives section of this blog or use the search bar above to search for it.
I’m going to provide a list of scholarship awarding bodies/organisations that give out lots of scholarships to international students.

- 4. German university scholarships[ DAAD]
- 5. Apex life scholarships[ India]
