It might interest you to know that the British Council, international universities, funding organizations, and Study abroad consultancies, record high volume of applications annually from international students who desire to obtain advanced qualifications in various universities around the world especially within Europe, America, Canada, the Netherlands and Australia amongst other countries.
Admitting that this is a very good intention, international prospective students are faced with the great challenge to secure funding for their intended undergraduate or graduate studies either for taught or research studies.
The book, Free Money to Study Overseas, written by Baruch Silas centers on the steps a prospective student needs to take to secure sponsorship for graduate studies and where to get the sponsorship.
It starts with the guidelines on how to apply for funding for graduate studies.
Baruch identifies that most applications for academic sponsorship are turned down because they negate the rules of such funding opportunities.
Inasmuch as one qualifies by default for a particular funding opportunity, one must follow the application requirements to the letter before being considered. Your application is what sells you before the selection panel as they do not know you in person.
This book, therefore, informs every individual of the funding opportunities available to him/her to achieve the dream of being trained in an international institution of learning around the world.
It also treats issues on tips on applying for a funding opportunity; top ten guidelines for passing TOEFL exam; things to consider for before applying for sponsorship; how to ask for a letter of recommendation; the psychology of winning a scholarship; how to win a study sponsorship and other issues.
