Study Anywhere You Want with the Full OFID Scholarship for Master Students

Online colleges are the swiftest way to getting an education. Online degree providers support the idea that everyone has a right to education – even if you’re 70 or a single parent or a child coming from a troubled home.

Online colleges have it all – a wide range of online degree programs, good tutors and flexible studying hours. You get to learn at your own pace from the comfort of your own home – whenever you have the time. Students of online universities can also request financial help in the form of scholarships for college. But what if you already graduated with an online degree from one of the many online universities out there? What if you want to try something new? Something old school.

Like actually being part of a campus and going to real life lectures. Well with a degree from one of the online colleges under your belt you can look further towards Master’s Studies.

And with one of the scholarship for college available to support Master Studies, you too can travel abroad to study. For example the OPEC Fund for International Development is offering scholarships to applicants who wish to study for a Master Degree. Applicants need to be from one of the eligible regions including Niger, Namibia, Ethiopia, Angola, Senegal, Uganda or Zambia.

The grant covers tuition fees, a monthly allowance to cover living expenses, books and accommodation fees, a relocation grant and travel costs from the nearest airport to the student’s place of residence to the nearest airport to the chosen place of study.

It might sound too good to be true, but rest assured – it’s not. In order to apply to the OPEC Fund for International Development’s scholarships, applicants need to be between age of 23 and 32. They also have to be on the verge of completing their bachelor degree with one of the accredited offline or online universities out there. Students need to have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 rating system (or equivalent).

It’s important that the student is a national of the eligible developing countries listed on the foundation’s official website, but it’s not mandatory. You can still try even if your country is not on the list. However nationals of the OFID Member Countries including Algeria, Ecuador, Gabon, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya, Nigeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and Venezuela aren’t eligible to apply.

Last but not least, only students with an interest in certain areas of study that support OFID’s core mission can apply. These areas including economics of development (poverty reduction, energy and sustainable development), environment (desertification) and other related sciences and technology fields.

In order to apply for the scholarships, students will be required to fill in an application, upload necessary documents including CV, two recommendation letters, Bachelor’s certificate/transcript, acceptance letter into postgraduate program, passport copy and essay.

So make sure you to read the whole list properly to ensure you send in everything that has been requested. This year’s deadline is May 1, so you still have 18 days left to get all the documents you need in order.
