Take full advantage of the opportunity that is presented to you. Since applicants are usually in excess of the financial grants that colleges or universities may sanction, you must explore all options available to you to get your desired scholarship.
Besides government sponsored scholarships, private organizations, civic groups, charitable foundations and corporate houses also offer overseas study scholarships to aspiring students. Applicants are usually asked to write a detailed essay called Letter of Intent in which they have to justify their eligibility for study abroad scholarships.
