Scholarships are helpful as they help offset our financial burden while we focus on our studies.

There are several types of scholarships – Full scholarships, Partial scholarships, Government scholarships, and Non-GPA based scholarships.

Full scholarships are synonymous with advanced academic levels such as MSc, PhD, and Research-based programs.

Partial scholarships are usually synonymous with Bachelor’s degree level. They do not usually require a separate application in most cases as they are issued automatically with your admission.

Most scholarships can be found on a university website. 

Bachelor’s degree applicants can seek full scholarships through their Government, Private companies, or Philanthropists.

 

HOW TO WRITE A SCHOLARSHIP STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:

A statement of purpose (SOP) is a document showing your study intent. An SOP can also be used for scholarships as well. See how to write a good SOP by clicking here.

 

HOW TO WRITE A RESEARCH PROPOSAL:

A research proposal is also important when applying for a research grant. Click here to see a sample.

 

HOW TO FIND A RESEARCH SUPERVISOR:

A lot of scholarships are tied to research. These researches are not in the field of sciences alone. It can be in any profession. Your best shot at a research-based scholarship is when you are able to secure a Supervisor.

  1. Google “Academic staff + university”. Example “Academic staff Wilfrid Laurier University”. This would provide the list of academic staff and their contact information. Click here to see an example.
  2. Reach out to them via email using the format listed here.
  3. Another option is to search on LinkedIn. Click here to see an example.
