Looking back over the past 5 years of my Engineering degree, 1 thing that has kept me sane & I’m really grateful for are scholarships I got.
I wrote tests and got offers for:
& these really helped in keeping me focused (having to keep above a certain CGPA to get it renewed).
I’m not from a rich family so I’ve always wanted that independence (not having to bother others with my issues), that extra income, that comfort, that assurance that I won’t get stuck & I’m really good at aptitude tests that’s really what drove me to search for scholarships on getting into the university..
Back then scholarships used to be published on the Tuesday/Thursday edition of National newspapers so I’d buy every copy of those papers (had them all around my apartment) and put in every application possible.
I got offers for almost all I wrote exams for and having a scholarship helped me focus and go through the 5 years of my undergraduate course (I didn’t start my business seriously till I wrote my final exams this year).
Nowadays it’s easier to find scholarships with a lot of websites dedicated to publishing them so I’d recommend this path to any student just getting into school.
