  • BUILD A STRUCTURE: Create a base for your search. Know the answers for the following questions:
    “What and where am I looking for?”
    “What timeframe am I looking it for?”
    “Am I looking for ‘merit-based’ or ‘need-based’ aid?”
    “Am I looking for full or supplement scholarship?” – for your budget calculations (see below).

  • MAKE A BUDGET CALCULATION: It is essential to make a comparison on your financial background versus your expected budget. Here you can find more info on the cost of living: Undergraduate, Graduate
