The global economic slowdown only means that students have a hard time in enrolling quality colleges and universities.
However, the various foundations, organizations and trusts have always come forward to help students who need strong financial support.Scholarships or grants are usually extended to students who produce extraordinary results in a particular field.

Although there are thousands of such scholarships available, do remember that there are millions of students who would be applying for these scholarships. So the competition is intense and not everyone gets this scholarship.
On the other hand, getting a grant is not an easy task. The organization might have a number of requirements and you need to pass in all those criteria. There will be a series of tests also that will determine the ‘perfect’ candidates for such grants.
Since these grants are limited, one has to do really well in the tests to come in the reckoning. But if you are lucky, you can get selected for a grant. After this you can start looking for the university right away.
Coming back to the scholarships, always remember that the chances of getting a scholarship hugely depend on the papers that you are submitting. On the basis of your submitted papers the organization will decide whether to grant you the scholarship or consider someone else.
