Articles for "motivation"

September 2nd, 2013

Nobody likes to waste time, right? You want your efforts to be repaid and you must remember this mantra when you are searching and applying for a grant. Too many students make the mistake of going head first and applying for all the scholarships that they can get their hands on without even taking a look to see if they are worthy of their time of not. So, here are the three things you need to look for when applying for a scholarship.

Number one is to research the Institution that offers the grant. Is it legal and trustworthy? You can check it on search engines or go deeper than that, but make sure that you will be working with the right people.

Number two is checking what the grant is all about and if you like it. It is very important to like the subject and to be into the field that they are offering a grant or a scholarship for. There is no point in studying chemistry if you absolutely hate it only because there is a scholarship on that subject. Do not do that.

And the third and most important thing is to check the eligibility criteria. There is a lot of documentation to be done for each scholarship and if you don`t check if you are eligible you might work for nothing. Go through the conditions and see if you have the right nationality or residence. Make sure you have the financial need that they are looking for and please check if you GPA is high enough to get that scholarship or grant. Check if you have the motivation to study for that course that you might be taking and see if you have the adequate college preparatory work. These are not the only conditions you have to fulfill and you only get the full list if you look for it.

All this work, small work, will save you a lot of time and effort in the future so make sure that you do it. In getting a grant preparation it is as important or even more important than actually applying. Focus your effort on grants that you really want.
