Masdar Institute in UAE Awards a Full Grant to Master African Students

Studying with a master degree can be a very expensive business. Regardless of whether you choose one of the offline or online degree programs out there – they all indiscriminately come with significant tuition fees attached. Online colleges might not be as expensive as traditional universities, but online education might not appeal to everyone, due to the fact that it often limits students’ social interaction with the outside world. Yes, online degree programs bring great benefits to students who also have a job or family members to take care of, but if you are free of such responsibilities you might want to look beyond online education and towards the stability offered by an old-school college campus.

Back to master degrees. Before applying to one, the question arises – what difference will a master degree really make to you? What guarantee do you have that your personal investment of time and even finances will pay off? Naturally, the answer to all these question is not straightforward, but one thing is for sure – a master degree will endow students with formative experience, specialist knowledge and transferable skills. But what about financial investment? The good news is that student scholarships are your answer to financial woes. If you are a student from Africa even better, as there I a wide range of student scholarships to take advantage of when you’re thinking of immersing yourself in two additional years of offline or online education (yes, you can take Master courses online too – if that’s what you want).

The Masdar Institute of Science and Technology in the United Arab Emirates is offering grants for students from developing countries. So you can’t be a student of online education if you want to apply for this scholarship – as you have to be willing to re-locate in the beautiful United Arab Emirates.

The Institute is awarding these student scholarships to students who are studying for a master’s level degree. To apply for funding for a Master Degree related to water management, you will need to have graduated from one of the accredited traditional or online degree programs available with universities across the world. Candidates applying also need to demonstrate a very good command of the English language by sending in a copy of their GRE or TOEFL (or IELTS) scores. A minimum TOEFL score of 91 (iBT) or equivalent paper/computer based scores, or a minimum academic IELTS score of 6.5 is preferred.

The grant covers 100% tuition fees, required textbooks, a laptop, reimbursement of GRE or TOEFL exam/test fees, Masdar Institute housing, monthly stipend, health insurance and annual return ticket home.

The grant covers 100% tuition fees, required textbooks, a laptop, reimbursement of GRE or TOEFL exam/test fees, Masdar Institute housing, monthly stipend, health insurance and annual return ticket home.

Graduates of traditional or online colleges have to submit a copy of undergraduate/graduate transcript, statement of objectives, copy of CV plus name and email address of 3 referees. The deadline to apply is May 31, 2017.
