Scholarship Programs That Cover More Than Just Tuition Fees – Part I.

Simply put, many college students will actively look out for some funded scholarships at the start of every semester. This is also the time when a new tuition bill is all ready to break you or your parents. It is recommended to go and discover some free scholarships rather than get despaired.

There are numerous scholarships available from private companies and foundations across the world. These are the organizations that actively provide scholarship aid to students as they are going to improve different communities and eventually even contribute towards improving entire countries with qualified and skilled human power.

There are thousands of scholarships for students from developing countries that have a restricted criteria such as specification of origin, particular subject of study, etc. In this three part series we have put together a comprehensive list of scholarship programs that offer a lot more than just tuition fees, some of which are targeted towards students from developing countries.

British Chevening Scholarships
This is a program from the U.K. government and covers tuition, living expenses, other essential expenses and economy class airfare. The one thing that is ambiguous about the U.K. is whether the funding that is provided for expenses other than tuition fees through scholarships is taxable. Some say yes while others say no. The financial experts we contacted could not clarify the issue.

The Holland Scholarship
This is for students from outside the European Economic Area and is for both Bachelor’s and Master’s program for those who wish to study in the Netherlands. The amount offered is a fixed sum of 5,000 Euros.
