SOURCES OF POSTGRADUATE SCHOLARSHIP
Many governments have schemes to award scholarships for students to study abroad. Find out about these scholarships through your own government offices, current university careers advice service or through British Council offices in your own country.
Many businesses Houses provide funding for scholarships, although in many cases these are only available to those who work for or have been offered employment by those companies, as they are part of the company’s training programme. One may need to guarantee that you will return to work for the company for a specified period after graduation.
Charity organisation scholarships
Both local and national charities provide funding for students to study abroad, particularly where the charity has an educational or development focus. Such scholarships may be limited in number and only available to students from certain backgrounds.
Many local organizations or charities have small numbers of masters scholarships for the education of those from a particular town, city, school, church or university. The best way to find out about these will be through local contacts and organizations.
Scholarships from international organizations
Some international organizations offer scholarships if they have an educational or development focus. For example, the European Union has scholarships to support students from Latin America wishing to study at postgraduate level in an EU country.
