What Makes You an Ideal Scholarship Candidate? Find Out

November 2017

Students sometimes refrain from pursuing their higher education due to the costs of studying abroad. However, there are several scholarships that help students pay for their overseas program. These scholarships are a popular form of financial assistance and are awarded to students each year. Here's what makes you a promising candidate for that scholarship program.

Study Abroad Programs

Maintain Good Grades

Scholarships have certain requirements and maintaining good grades is one of them. Therefore, a student's academic background can be a deciding factor for a scholarship program. Good grades suggest that you are focused on your academics and this increases your chances of gaining a sscholarship.

Write a Strong Application Essay

When writing your statement of purpose, your goal is to stand out from the pool of other desirable candidates, writing a powerful application essay gives reviewers a chance to notice you. Your personal statement is a crucial part of your scholarship application and so it is important that you set aside time and focus on writing a compelling essay.

Extra-curricular activities

The extracurricular activities that you have participated in are another added advantage when applying for a scholarship program. The admissions office looks for traits outside of the classroom, and the type of activities that you engage in determines what you will bring to the program.

Community Service

There are certain scholarships that reward students for active participation in the community, and so listing down all the services that you have rendered to the community is beneficial when applying for a scholarship. This shows the admissions council that you are keen on making a difference to society.

"I would like to thank Edwise for all the support and guidance they provided me with, for my university application. I had no clue which colleges I wanted to apply to initially but by counselor really helped me choose and sort out things. She was more than helpful and easily approachable. I got all the information I wanted ranging from suitable courses and universities to scholarships and accommodations available. I also consider my counselor to be an integral part in helping me fetch a scholarship at the University as well. If you are applying for your studies abroad and are looking for help, in my opinion, Edwise is the place to be at. P.S. Thanks a ton to my counselor. I know my case was a crazy one.
