 It's a good idea to apply for scholarships even before you go to college, especially if you're thinking about studying in another country. Some scholarships are for students who are still figuring out their education plans. They want to support students who do well in school, take on leadership roles, and contribute to their community, whether they've been accepted to college yet or not.

I always advise people to start searching for scholarships early. Look into ones offered by the government, international groups, and specific universities. It can really help you out.

Yes, you can apply for scholarships before getting admission. At first, I wasn't sure if I could apply before getting into a college, but guess what? Turns out, lots of scholarships don't care about that  you can apply even before you get accepted.

I found some scholarships that were just for students planning to study abroad like me. These scholarships really helped me figure out my budget for school and living expenses. Start looking for scholarships as soon as you can. I know it might feel like a lot with all the college applications, but trust me, it's doable and totally worth it.

Yes, you can start applying for scholarships way before you get admission but you need to be sure that you would be getting an admit or else your scholarship would go to waste. 

Who can apply for scholarships?

Different types of scholarships target different students. 

Always check if you can apply, if the scholarship application deadlines are up-to-date, and if the scholarship is open to national students, international students, or both.


Here are 7 steps to apply to a scholarship:
1. Register for the scholarship, usually by completing an online application form.


2. Check your inbox to make sure you’ve received the confirmation email.


3. Write a personal statement or essay. Try to be original and impress through your unique experiences and ideas.


4. Get official proof of your academic, athletic, or artistic achievements. Translate the documents if necessary — it usually is.


5. Get official proof of your low income or nationality (for region-based scholarships). Again, a translation might be necessary.


6. Submit the acceptance letter from the university. You won’t receive the scholarship without confirming that you will actually begin studies.


7. Wait for the results. If selected, congratulations, you’re a winner!

Yes, applying for scholarships before receiving a college admission offer is not only possible but also highly recommended. As a study abroad consultant with over a decade of experience, I advise students to begin their scholarship applications concurrently with their college applications. Many external scholarships and fellowships are independent of college admissions and are awarded based on merit, financial need, field of study, or personal background. Early application is crucial as it aligns with scholarship deadlines, which sometimes close months before the college application deadlines.

To maximize your chances, make sure to prepare a strong portfolio highlighting your academic achievements, extracurricular activities, and leadership qualities. Utilizing a proactive approach to both college and scholarship applications can greatly enhance your opportunities to secure substantial funding for your education abroad.
