Types of Scholarships

There are two types of scholarships in terms of funding. Full and partial scholarships. Lets start with full scholarships.

Full scholarships

These are the most popular scholarships for international students as they cover your tuition fees and living costs. Some full scholarships provide funding for extra costs of university studies above and beyond tuition fees and room and board. These might include the costs of books, travel expenses, health insurance (which is required on many college campuses), and supplies (computer, notebooks, pens, for example). Some full scholarships also include a work/study program for the student to earn extra cash. This may also take the form of a job to cover personal expenses.

Full scholarships are very competitive and usually you will be selected based on your academic abilities.They are often granted by institutions of higher education themselves as a means of attracting top students.

Examples of Full scholarships:

African Biomedical Engineering Mobility Scholarships 2018/2019 ( Deadline:August 26,2018)

Mexican Government scholarship program 2019 for international students (Deadline: September 28,2018)

Partial scholarships:

These can range from small, one-off payments to covering your whole tuition fees. They do not usually include any support for your living costs or your travel expenses. However some part scholarships may cover only living expenses and tuition fees may be borne by students themselves.

For example a 60% Tuition Scholarship at a private University where the Tuition fees are $20,000 would equal about $12,000 in scholarships which means that you will have to pay 8000$ only for your tuition fees.

Typical example of partial scholarship

Bachelor degree scholarships for Rwandan students at PIASS-Huye (Deadline: August 25,2018)

University of Lausanne (UNIL) Master’s grants for International students (Deadline: November 1,2018)
