Does getting a scholarship require a lot of connections and networks? What if I have none? Am I doomed?
Cheer up! There are more people around you who are willing to help than you think!
Various offices such as government, schools, private corporations, foundations, and alumni associations provide a wide array of scholarship opportunities!
Each of these organizations gives you choices depending on what scholarship you’re eyeing. Local Government Units, for example, are mandated to allocate budget for it. So as long as you’re a resident of a locality, you’re eligible to apply. The Department of Education and Commission on Higher Education offer scholarships of many types and disciplines.
Big schools and universities also allocate budget for scholarship programs, as supported by the government. You may also turn to private organizations and foundations for available scholarships for you. Check out some of those scholarships that have Corporate Social Responsibility arms on Education to ensure that your search is meaningful.
Remember, these organizations are there to provide you choices in order to make well-informed academic decisions, so go make your list and contact them for more information!
