What is a Scholarship?
The scholarship is financial aid to help students and researchers study and do research in academic institutions worldwide.
Scholarships may be full, to cover all costs related to the study or the research, or partial, to cover only a part of the costs.
Each student, researcher, professor, teacher, and parent dedicate a bunch of time to local or international scholarship search with the hope to find one or more such opportunities, which will fully or partially cover study, research, or living costs.
To find scholarships, each applicant has to search scholarships extensively and consult international scholarship database sites, and register in academic mailing lists to receive announcements about international scholarships daily. Thus the answer is – search for scholarships online and share whatever you find with mates and friends online on Facebook, Twitter, or Snap Chat.

Many students take loans to cover all the necessary costs or pay themselves if they are rich enough. Still, the vast majority of all academically oriented people worldwide search for international scholarships.
Available scholarships are first announced by the scholarship granting organization, i. e. university or a research institute, and afterward distributed via online resources, mailing lists, and scholarship search site platforms.
