APPLICATION FEE IN SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION Application Fee The Scholarship application process is very expensive. The entire process requires a lot of resources like financial resources, time, internet access, determination and so forth. You need to take high risk in order to yield positive results. In order to apply and get full scholarship, I kindly advise you to apply to more than 25 scholarship programs. There is extensive scholarship competition, and there are thousands of people are applying for the same. For that case, be strategic when applying with regard to your financial resources. If you do not have enough money for the application fee, apply many universities in Europe where no application fee. And when you apply in the United States, make sure you apply more for those which do not require the application fee first then others which need application fee. In that way, you will manager to apply many scholarship programs and you will be in a position to get more than one opportunity and choose the best scholarship on the basis of cost-benefit analysis and cost-effective.

It is advisable that your recommenders (references or referees) should be either your professors and/or employers/supervisors in your work. These letters describe applicant's qualities in academic field and working environment. The letters should emphasize more on positive qualities. If the letters describe that applicant is not capable of pursuing studies in that particular field, even if applicant has higher GPA will not be considered for scholarships. In that case, make sure your recommender is the person who really knows you, you trust him/her and is having a good intention towards your success. The Recommendation Letters should be professional recommendation. In that sense, the letters should not be written with a family, friend, colleagues at work or relative on personal basis.
