Scholarships and Financial aid: types and benefits

Going to university or college is one of the biggest investments anyone could ever make in life. Going to a foreign university is an even bigger investment. Essential questions that must be answered include:

Scholarships and Financial aid: What are they and why apply?

A scholarship or study grant is an award of financial aid to a scholar for access into an institution, for the purpose of furthering their education.

Other names by which it is known are studentships, financial aid, and the like. A scholar may be an undergraduate or a postgraduate student.

PhD and Doctorate degrees

What is the difference between PhD and doctorate degrees?
