University of Ghent’s Master’s Scholarship Program Offers €650/month

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.

Naturally in order to apply for funding at the University of Ghent, you need to have graduated with a traditional or online bachelor degree. The selection criteria revolves around the qualifications of the applicants and the significance of the master’s program applied to the student’s country of origin. And here’s another piece of good news – there is no strict age limit, although applicants under 40 are preferred.

So there you go. Put your online degrees to good work and start applying for a Master or PhD program. Don’t let the time you spend learning at the offline or online university go to waste. By moving to another country for a few years you are bound to learn more about life, while also pursuing a degree that will eventually help your career advance in the right direction.

    Re: Application for a Scholarship
    Ladies and gentlemen,
    Hello,

    I have the honor to apply to you for an application to obtain
    documentation on admission requirements at your university and a
    scholarship form for a university
    For your information, I am named Michaël NYANGOLO MUGISHO. I am of
    Congolese nationality (DRC) in Central Africa, I speak French and a
    little English. Born on 02.05.1989 in Kinshasa where I live, I am a
    Bachelor\’s degree in Literature and I have a Bachelor\’s Degree in
    Financial Management with distinction
    Given the current issues of climate change, the global food agenda and
    the sustainable development of countries in critical situations for
    rapid emergence in this globalizing world.
    Not being spared by the precariousness of the socio-economic situation
    of my country thus affecting the fabric of its educational system, I
    lead a life without financial support because having lost my father
    too young, I would like to take advantage of this opportunity To study
    in order to acquire the knowledge in economics as is the
    case of the several personalities who have passed among you the
    current president of LIBERIA Mrs Hellène JOHNSON who graduated from
    HARVARD and go back to Countries to contribute to its sustainable
    development.
    In the hope of reading to you shortly, please accept, Ladies and
    Gentlemen, the assurance of my distinguished consideration.

    Thank you.

    Michael NYANGOLO
