For students in Indonesia and East Timor, the government of India is offering twenty new scholarships. These scholarships can be used in a variety of fields and they can be extended for all levels of study, right up to post-doctoral. This is another great opportunity for students to see new places, study new cultures, and learn new languages. Best of all, someone else can pay for it!
On the other hand, if you are a student from India, there are also many opportunities to find scholarships for you to see and study in another country. GyanIn has a great summary of why American and European schools are willing to pay money to bring in Indian students. I would like to add to what is there, the public universities in America are extremely cheap compared to the private ones, and even if they don’t offer full tuition benefits, they may be cheaper when you consider fees, food, and housing.
The University of North Florida had a very active International Students department, and students from more than a hundred countries attended classes with us. When many perspectives come together in the pursuit of learning the truth, the results are much better than a single point of view. As a bonus, this means there is money available to bring in new ways of looking at the world!
If you’re interested in studying internationally, it pays to spend some time looking for scholarships and tuition assistance. Schools all over the world are competing to get the best students in their classes, and the more diverse the population, the better. Learning another language and culture will prepare you for increased earnings and better opportunities for promotion in your career. Its also exciting, and it could be the adventure of your life!
