One of the major negatives that come with studying abroad is the expense. The tuition fee for 

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 5 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. 

Vanier Graduate Scholarships

Funded by the Canadian government, this scholarship grants CAD 50000 which is roughly 30 Lakhs INR. While the number of scholarships granted is 166, they have a pretty competitive review process, making it tough for you to get into that number of 166 selected students. 

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.
