A points to note when seeking scholarship from any of the advanced countries;

1. One needs to have a good academic CGPA. Most of the universities hardly find it difficult to give scholarships to students with 3rd class.

2. Scholarships come by the program you are chosen. Some programs give fully or partial scholarships and even pay monthly stipend.

3. One needs to have a research program that is of your interest and email the school or some lecturers /professors with it.

4. You needs to be a cheer morale, singer or sports person. One needs to write a letter to that effect convincing enough because a lot of people are seeking for that.

Add ups;

1. Scholarship is not necessarily for the most intelligent, it is for the most informed and the smartest.

2. There is no rigid rule for any scholarship, your ability to convince them can make them waive some requirements.

3. Sending emails to Professors in different schools in the world is a faster and better way of getting scholarship than applying for a general scholarship.

4. Your writing skills is the most important in any scholarship application. Your voice is much important than your face.

5. High undergraduate CGPA is good, but average CGPA with good research background, work experience and volunteering work will make you better convince a Professor.

6. Learning how to construct a good motivation letter and email is a skill that cannot be over emphasised.

7. There are always internal protocols to admissions in any University that are not necessarily stated on the website. Hence, your ability to get information from people in the school of your choice is a Key factor in getting the admission/funding.

8. The scholarship journey is not necessarily for the intelligent, it is for people who can fail many times and still stand up. You will get a lot of rejections. Be prepared for that.

9. Make sure you have various options in different schools and countries by doing thorough research. 90% of people who got admission/scholarship do not get it in their most preferred schools.
