103802381When it comes to finding an international scholarship, you’ll notice that there are a lot of options out there. You can find scholarships on merit or need. You can find scholarships based on where you are from or where you are going. You can find scholarships based on hobbies, the arts, sports, academics – the list goes on and on.

International scholarships are competitive, because many students are looking for ways to get funding that they don’t have to pay back. To stand out from the pool of applicants, we recommend focusing your efforts on applying to scholarships that are looking for someone just like you.

So how do we do that? The first step is to take an introspective look at yourself and find out what you like, what your good at, and what makes you – well – you!

Here are 8 questions to ask yourself to find an international scholarship:

  • What are your interests?
  • What are you good at?
  • What are your skills?
  • Where are you from?
  • Do you have economic hardship?
  • How are your academics?
  • What school are you going to attend?
  • What will you study?

Once you find out what makes you a unique candidate, then it is time to begin the hunt for scholarships. Use our scholarship search tool to find awards that matches your unique talents, skills, and interests. This also makes it much easier to apply for these awards because you’ve already demonstrated your passion whether it’s through previous awards or experiences.
