Looking for Scholarships for Studying Abroad in the USA? Here’s with 6 Tips to win over the USA Scholarship

USA Scholarship Tip #1 - What types of USA Scholarships are available? (1) Universities in the US often use a combination of Fee Reduction plus a monthly stipend. The Fee reduction is called “Tuition Scholarship” and the stipend is paid for “assistantship” where you assist a professor/faculty in research and/or teaching tasks for a certain number of hours every week. Thus a 50% tuition scholarship from a US university would imply that you have to pay only half of the fees. Additionally, as an assistant you will get a salary/stipend of $500 to $4000 depending on the size and location of your university (2) The second type is called “Fellowship” wherein your profile has been found so good that often your entire fees are waived. You may also be required to assist faculty in research for a certain number of hours each week.

USA Scholarship Tip #2 - Your entire profile matters! Scholarships are granted after viewing the consistency record of the applicant. Your academic performance during the study years – right from primary schooling to date – is reviewed along with your GRE/GMAT/SAT score. The work experience of the applicant also matters. The admissions committee may find your skills, expertise and experience to be useful towards research/projects/teaching assignments at the university.

USA Scholarship Tip #3 - Your entrance score GRE/GMAT/SAT tells them about your academic and hence performance potential: To put it plainly: If you do not have truly exceptional academic records, your entrance exam score can still cover up for the gap! Why so? Exams such as GRE/GMAT/SAT and TOEFL are standardized tests administered on an international level. Thus the academic committee fins it much easier to compare applications on the basis of such scores. At our offices in Mumbai, Pune and Nagpur, we provide support on every aspect of gaining scholarships, right from entrance preparation to admissions consulting to visa.

USA Scholarship Tip #4 – Be willing to compromise on university rankings: The United States has atleast 100 top universities in every given area of studies. If scholarship is more important, you may have to settle for a lesser ranked university (say 45th rank in place of 27th rank). Thus one has to achieve a balance between the practical aspect (funds available for study and the risk you/your sponsor can willingly take) and the university ranking. One could consult a US education expert to help you make such decisions

USA Scholarship Tip #5 - Admissions and scholarship Essays and related documents are not just “formalities”: Just imagine the fact that someone from across the seas is deciding on the best candidate for a $25000 scholarship – on the basis of academic records, Resume, Recommendation letters and essays of applicants. That in addition to a possible interview is the only information he/she has in hand! Wouldn’t it be smart to then ensure that your writing (essays, recommendations, SOP, Resume) stands out? Would it be worth your time to promote yourself for the $25000 income??

USA Scholarship Tip #6 - The admissions interview is crucial towards scholarship for study in USA: The admission interview is very important. The admissions team tends to judge a range of qualities of the candidate over the interview. Before the interview (1) Be thoroughly prepared with all your application details (2) Ensure atleast 5-10 practice interviews to eliminate interview stress (3) Note of all the standard questions and prepare your points for them and (4) Be in a noise-free area at the time of the interview
