Finding the right course is a difficult decision, and finding scholarships to finance your schooling is just as tough.
While everybody wants to follow their dream careers, there are realistically certain courses that have more job and scholarship opportunities available than others.
“High-demand” courses typically have more course-specific scholarship options, especially from foundations that may be related to the companies you want to be employed in! The demand of certain courses may also give you an idea of what the current job market is looking for.
While you are not advised to choose a course based on the amount of scholarships being offered (you should be passionate about what you’re studying of course!), it is still an important point of consideration. The Edukasyon.ph scholarship database offers a comprehensive list for you to browse, so take a look and see if some of these courses are a good fit for you!
The following are some of the more popular eligible courses cited in the scholarship listings available on Edukasyon.ph. Many of these scholarships are provided by companies who have demand from graduates of these specific courses. They will most likely offer opportunities for part-time employment or internships as a bonus, which is a perfect way to both fund your schooling and to gain some relevant work experience!
- Business Management, Accountancy, and Other Related Fields
- Engineering (Civil, Electronics, Mechanical etc.)
- Computer Sciences and I.T.
If you’re interested in any of these college courses, be sure not to miss out on the opportunity to apply for the many scholarships available.
Course-specific scholarships are not restricted to four-year college degrees. In fact, two-year tech-voc courses are also plentiful, and can be a good fit for those who want to quickly become job-ready in a specific field. Popular fields with scholarships include:
