I understand that finances can look like a big hindrance to your study abroad dream but don’t worry, there is always a way. 


While you can not get a fully-funded scholarship, you can look for scholarships that cover most part of your expenses. Here I have created a list of top scholarships and what all do they cover:


Fulbright Nehru Master’s fellowship 

The scholarship covers - a J-1 USA student visa support facility, economic class flight fares (round trip from the student’s hometown to the institution in the USA), 75%tuition fees, accident and sickness coverage as per the U.S. Government guidelines. 

The scholarship is awarded to just 4000 international students each year. 


Chevening Scholarship 

Funded by the UK government, the scholarship rewards up to £18,000 (INR 18,00,000). The acceptance rate for the Chevening Scholarship is around 3%. As an example in 2019, of the 63000 applicants, only 1800 were awarded the scholarship.


Commonwealth Scholarship 

Apart from the tuition fees, it covers airfare from the home country to the UK and return. The UK government also gives you a living allowance worth GBP 1084 per month. But the catch here is that this scholarship is awarded to ONLY 700 students each year, and the no. of applications is easily 90 Thousand to a Lakh.  


As mentioned, the acceptance rate of these scholarships is pretty low and you need to be double sure if your profile matches their requirements. Different countries have different scholarships and not all schools in a country would accept a single scholarship. The point is, the scholarships accepted would be varying across countries, schools, programs etc. 


So factors like your desired country, school, program, all of it will help you find the right scholarship for you. 


I know it can look a bit difficult to do all this by yourself. I suggest you directly get in touch with Study Abroad Experts here for FREE. They will analyse your profile and will help you with relevant details like what scholarships you can apply to or the loans that you can depend upon. 


Let me know if this helps and if you want any other information from my end.

Scholarships for master's programs vary widely, encompassing academic merit, financial need, field of study, and even demographic factors like country of origin or underrepresented groups in certain disciplines.

Key Points to Consider:

Academic and Merit-Based Scholarships: Most universities offer scholarships based on academic excellence. For instance, many prestigious institutions have scholarships that cover full tuition for students who exhibit outstanding academic achievement and potential.

Need-Based Scholarships: These are designed to support students who may not be able to afford higher education. Universities, as well as external organizations, evaluate applicants' financial situations to provide necessary aid.

Field-Specific Scholarships: If you're pursuing studies in high-demand fields like technology, engineering, or health sciences, numerous specialized scholarships are available. These often aim to encourage and support students who are entering sectors where skilled professionals are needed.

External Scholarships: Beyond university-offered scholarships, various organizations and foundations offer scholarships that can be applied to any institution. Websites like Scholarships.com and Fastweb can be valuable resources for finding such opportunities.

International Scholarships: For students studying abroad, scholarships like the Fulbright Program or those offered by the government of the host country can provide significant financial support.

Actionable Advice: Begin your search early and apply to as many scholarships as possible. Tailor your application to highlight how you meet the scholarship criteria, focusing on your academic achievements, leadership qualities, and future aspirations. Keep an eye on deadlines and required documentation to ensure your application is complete and competitive.
