Finding a scholarship program (or a sponsor) is a daunting task. But by using these tools, and with the help of today’s technology, finding a program or a sponsor can be as easy as taking a walk in the park.
Most students can’t afford the exorbitant tuition fees in universities, as these fees usually cost thousands of dollars, sometimes reaching hundreds of thousands. In order to somehow alleviate these costs, students usually take several part-time jobs to fund their education fees. Still, this isn’t enough to pay off those fees, and sometimes, these students stop studying altogether to pursue a full-time job, and then after earning a decent amount, pursue adult education.
Some universities offer bursaries, or financial aids, for students who wish to continue studying, but don’t have enough money to do so. But these are limited to some universities, particularly those well-known universities. Another option is to find a sponsor, who would help them pay off the fees and continue studying. However, it is hard to find one willing enough to sponsor a student.
But with today’s technology, finding a university which offers bursaries or a sponsor to pay for your university requirements is much, much easier. You can login to the Internet and search for universities and sponsors worldwide through Scholarship Finder websites.
These Scholarship Finder websites allow students to search for willing universities and sponsors all around the world. By using this tool, they can easily have a talk with these people regarding their university and campus fees, and how they can help in funding students. For universities, they can also talk about the college scholarships they offer.
This tool is easy to use; just input the needed data (Grade Point Average, Residency, Desired Location, etc.) and the system will match (according to your needs) and output the list of universities and people who wish to help students by offering them free scholarship programs and bursaries. It will also show the award amount, the university’s location / person’s contact details, and the courses on which they offer those financial aids. It is best if you input the necessary details (amount needed, location) to get the most precise scholarship offers in your area.
For those who have no Internet connection, however, they can still find campuses who offer financial aid applications with the help of magazines. Maclean’s, one of the most well-known Canadian magazine which focuses on issues such as politics, education, and current events, lists Canadian universities’ rankings according to its popularity in a separate book called, “Maclean’s Guide to Canadian Universities”. This book, which is published annually in March, lists the most popular and reputable universities in Canada. It also contains information about the universities, like the courses being offered, career opportunities, and scholarship programs. This is a helpful guide if you are living or currently residing in Canada, but if you are living on other countries, you might find a similar guidebook that details the universities’ information in your country.
Be advised that each of these universities and sponsors will have different requirements for you to avail of their scholarship grants and bursaries. Be sure to know these requirements beforehand, and if you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask them to furnish you with more information about these financial aids.
