The Criteria on the Basis of which I’ve chosen these 10 universities
Before I give you that exciting list of 10 universities that you’re dying to know about, I want to tell you the basis on which I’ve chosen these particular 10 universities.
1. The Quantum of Scholarship
These 10 universities will either give you a full scholarship on your full tuition. Or it might extend your living costs, your personal costs, your book costs, and all of those.
And sometimes you may even get a stipend up to $2,500 in addition to all of these.
2. The number of awards that they give every year
there’s no point bringing to you universities that give one or two scholarships, and there are several of those that you want to keep in mind.
For this article, we’re going to look at universities that give a large number of scholarships or have an instituted scholarship program, and some of these universities even give financial aid up to five hundred or six hundred students per annum.
3. Financial aid and Scholarship is loan free.
When you graduate, you have absolutely no debt component that is there for you to have repaid.
4. Ranking Of university:
Because I know you love the best schools, but I want to add a word of caution here that because these schools are really good and because they give financing. They are really very selective and admissions to these universities can be extremely difficult.
Sometimes they may even accept less than 10% of the applications that they receive.
I know you’re super talented and you’re going to qualify for those admissions and for the financial aid.
