For the uninitiated, a scholarship is an award, usually in the form of financial relief or admission to the university, which allows a student to further their education. It’s always wise to enquire about financial aid from the institute that you are applying to. They may even have scholarships that you can apply for. The early magpie really does catch the finest jewel, here; bear in mind that for most courses, you will have to apply a year in advance prior to admission. Competition is going to be fierce but don’t let that get you down and get researching!

If you’re looking for specific scholarships, you can search at the IEFA to see if there are any related to your field and in the country of your choice, though most of these are exchange programs with the USA.
