Many students don’t know where to start – what is the first step? The first step is to identify what are the different scholarships available around the world.

Many students are reluctant to even apply because they think their GPA is low. First, GPA is not the only determinant. Second, not all scholarships are equally competitive. The solution is (i) to cover a low GPA with other strengths such as publications and (ii) to apply for less competitive scholarships (happy to share these).

This mindset also makes students less confident. Yes, publications are a huge plus but it’s not the only determinant either. Even if you don’t have publications, you should still apply. While you are hunting for scholarships, start working on a publication. It’s not as difficult as it may look from a distance.
