Educational grants are the key to success in a world where education has become an expensive commodity. You see most people take going to college for granted because they have been led to believe it is somehow part of their birth right. But students coming from broken or poor families know that the reality of things is much different. Today if you want to enroll with a traditional or online bachelor degree you need to pay a series of very high taxes – but not everybody has that kind of money.
Getting a higher education has become very expensive, especially if you are past the college going age. With the advent of online university programs thing have gotten a little better. The wider availability of online degrees had an effect of lowering some of these tuition fee, but for some struggling students it’s still not enough. That’s why educational grants are so important for financial challenged students who want to study with one of the offline or online degrees available – as they bring the necessary relief needed for them to focus on learning and studying and not on the financial aspect.
But what if you already graduated with an offline or online bachelor degree? Should you stop here? You don’t have to, you can go ahead and continue learning by enrolling with a Master’s offline or online university program. The good news is that lots of colleges and third party institutions offer educational grants for students interested in taking their education to the next level. For example, the University of Ghent in Belgium is awarding one such bursary to students in developing countries including Central Africa Republic, Chad, Comoros, Malawi, Senegal, Rwanda, Niger, Senegal or Sudan.
The bursary awards recipients an allowance of €650 per month, all-in insurance (health, civil liability, repatriation), but airline tickets and visa costs are not included. Students can apply to a wide range of program including European Maters of Science in Nuclear Fusion and Engineering Physics or Photonics or International Masters of Science in Agro-and Environmental Nematology or Biomedical Engineering. There is a whole list to choose from and we recommend you take a look at the official website and go through them all – before you make a decision.
