Grad school scholarships?

On the topuniversities blog there's this post which got me thinking about trying for one of these! I'd like to study somewhere new and far away from home to really make the most of this experience but it seems like such a far-fetched dream sometimes. Have any of you received such scholarships, and care to share how you got them? Thanks!

Me too! Doing a masters abroad is my dream - espeicially in Canada or the US. Seems like there are some really good ones but you have to be pretty lucky :S

OMG I read that post too!! I really want to study in New York and start a new life for myself! What country are you from - u should check if there is a Fulbright commission, the one for the UK is -

I want that I read abroad university please send me format how can admition of your university please and send me amount of university expanses please give me charities i am a poor but I read and make a big business man please help me please I am very thankful for u thank

Well, there is no denying that attaining any scholarship seems a far-fetched dream. But let me be honest with you; if you don't believe you can do it, you will never do it. Most of the scholarship committees review candidates' academic history but your essay/personal statement is the defining feature of your scholarship application. So you must pay special attention to it. Read it hundreds of times if you are not satisfied with it, get someone to read it, preferably your teacher, senior colleague or someone who has already attained any scholarship. Hope your dream will become reality :)

I wish a good time for all of the student in the world

This may sound silly, but what exactly is the difference between a fellowship and a scholarship??

Hi. I think somethimes the terminology just varies depending on the university. But usually fellowshiops are for postgraduate students (or postdoctoral) and they're more like getting a job at the university, rather than just getting a grant to help with your funding. Does that make sense?

Agreed, A fellowship is where one has to work under a contract with the University, because of the scholarship granted.

Hi all,

Hopefully I can help you with your scholarship search.

There are many university scholarships around but the first place to look is on your chosen university's website where you'll find a full list of awards and grants that they offer. Some will be open to everyone but others will be subject specific, needs-based, for high achievers, or for  minority students. Scholarships for students from developing countries are also quite common for western universities to give out, particularly the US.

Often you'll need to have been accepted onto a course before applying for a scholarship, but this is not always the case.

One website that's particularly good is where you can search for scholarships based on your desired subject, country of study and home country, making it easy to see what's open to you around the world.

At QS we also have a range of scholarships for postgraduate students which you can find here - These awards are open exclusively to attendees of the QS World Grad School Tour which is a free event hosted all around the world.

Hope this information helps!

One of the many challenges of graduate school is obtaining the funding needed to pay for tuition, fees and living expenses. Fortunately, are government agencies, institutions of higher education and other

Graduate fellowships may be university-awarded, federally funded or may be fellowships offered by independent organizations, and many graduate fellowship programs are targeted.

Start your scholarship search right where you're thinking of attending grad school. Check out the school's website for a list of scholarships and fellowships.

Hello mam,I have scored 43% in graduation and am looking to study for my PG in a country like Germany though I know my %age isn't that good (my 10th and 12th %ages are far better around 70%)but is there any university in which I can get a chance to enroll myself into...?I am from commerce background and am looking for Ms in business mgnt or Mass communication.
Thank u
PS-waiting desperately for favorable info from u

Hi Suchit. Are you able to attend a QS World Grad School Tour event? This is a chance to get face to face advice and meet with universities and business schools from around the world. You can find your nearest event here

Thanks a lot for that but that hardly answers my question.

Admissions criteria will vary depending on the university and the course, but admission to universities in Germany is certainly very competitive. I suggested attending the QS World Grad School Tour as a way to get access to more personalized advice and perhaps discover some new options which you hadn't previously considered - apologies for not explaining this in my previous post.

I truly understand what u were trying to indicate mam and I have also looked up for the date of one of these events in my city and it like 5 months from now in April. So since it's quite far so just wanted to know from you if there are any universities in Germany where I stand a chance and name of them as per your knowledge.
And thanks a lot for taking out time for my question.

where can I find Scholarship for master in Microbiology ?

Hi Mohammed, the best place to look for scholarships would be the university you wish to attend. If you have not yet chosen a university, consider this list of the top universities in the world for biological sciences (use the filter to choose your country of study). Alternatively, take a look at our range of scholarships articles which list undergraduate and graduate scholarships to study across the world. Good luck! Laura

Thanks a lot Laura,I will most definitely do.You don't know how much I appreciate this...thanks again

Hi, I was wondering what would be better: studying psychologie in Galway or in Leuven (Belgium). I know leuven scores higher on the list, but some people told me that there are more job opportunities for this study in Ireland.

Hi Noemi. I'd recommend spending time looking at the course content in each case, to see which appeals to you most. If you're keen to find relevant work in the local area, it might also be worth contacting the department and/or the university careers service, to see whether they offer any placement schemes. Do let us know which you decide on!

Thank you, that really helped! And I will let you know as soon as I decided :)

Great, please do!

So, I will study psychology in Leuven, because they have a lot more interesting masters and I can always work in Ireland afterwards.

I just graduated my secondary level, I need help, anyone kind enough to help me find a scholarship, I'm planing to study abroad

Hi Lushomo, one of the best places to look for scholarship funding will be your chosen university (use their website to find this information) but we also have a range of scholarship articles to help students find funding opportunities all over the world.
