    I am a 22yrs old female and I just finished a degree in Mass Communication from a University in a French speaking West African Country and have passion to continue my education in Communication Arts (post graduate). I am therefore applying for women scholarship for a Masters Degree in communication Arts so as to advance my knowledge in the act of Communication. I will be glad if I am offered a scholarship because I cannot afford to pay for my tuition and other fees as my Father who saw my through my University is now a retired factory worker and in have other siblings who are still in school. Please I need your help, one can never, I may be an agent of change to African Women in general and Nigerian Women in particular.
    I look forward to your positive response.

    Yours Faithfully,
    Sowunmi Olayinka Elizabeth.

    My name is Christina. I am from Nepal and have recently been accepted at Georgetown University and Brown University for Masters in Biotechnology. I would like to focus on Development of vaccines against infectious diseases. However, I am not able to afford the education despite being chosen at such prestigious universities. Furthermore, the recent earthquake in Nepal has severely affected my country’s economy and I am not able to pay such high tuition. Any information on any kind of scholarships available would be highly appreciated. Thank you.

    Good Afternoon,
    My name is Amelia Lopez. I am currently an Accountant for a Residential Real Estate company with my Bachelors in Accounting and start back to school this week to get my Masters in Construction Management and to be eligible for the CPA. I was trying to apply for a scholarship/grant but I wasn’t sure where to go. I see scholarships on this page but not all of them say how to apply.

    Thank you for any help,
    Amelia Lopez

    I am studying a Ph.D at the women’s and gender studies program at the university in Thailand at the first year. I made decision to quit a job because I want to change my life and get a chance to find out more opportunities. However, I am a single mom that I have to take care my daughter who is studying an undergrad program in the university. I have to pay for the tuition about 3,500 US dollars per year from my saving money. May I have a chance to apply a scholarship to support for my education. I plan to study for 3 years.
