How to get a Scholarship

Are scholarships real?
In as much as fraudsters can post dubious scholarship announcement to swindle unsuspecting victims. Scholarships are real . Many are enjoying scholarships. I have a couple of friends that have not paid even a dime since their secondary school days.

Are Scholarship Applications free?
There is no free lunch even in Freetown. Absolutely not !!! While only a few scholarship providers will ask for an application fee(please be certain before you make any payment), majority of the scholarships are free. But this does not mean scholarships are free. Many scholarships especially the high paying ones have very stringent requirements besides to make a good application that will stand the competition requires a lot of time. Time is money so scholarship costs. In addition scholarships need a lot of research because at times they are good scholarships that do not get enough publicity

Which Scholarship is best for me?
The big question is How much fund do I have?. This does not mean that only indigent students apply for scholarships No!!!. Scholarships tells a lot about a person. Employers are always interested in applicants that have received one form of scholarship or the other, this to an extent show the degree of competition applicants can face. There are various type of scholarship, this varies with countries for list of scholarship which Nigerians can apply download scholarship9ja app for android here. Scholarship differs both with requirement and funding. The rule of thumb is to apply for the big scholarships(that is scholarships with full funding), but that is not always advisable. If you consider yourself as an averages student and have the necessary funds for a degree while we don`t advise you to leave any scholarship but it may be more profitable to focus on mid paying scholarship with lower competition than the high paying ones with cut throat competition

When to apply?
In scholarships not planning enough is planning to fail. The rule of thumb is to start researching for scholarships about a year before your intended date of study. The competition is often scaring, in addition some scholarship program will require that you already have gained an admission to certain schools. So the ideal thing is while applying for admission, you should already have a mental picture of the scholarships you want to apply. When you know what you are looking for, do not apply until you have read all of the requirements.

What if I am not accepted?
There are only very few people that have got all the scholarships they ever applied for. Please do not get discouraged if you are turned down. Maybe you got no reply after a long time, chances are you did not make but to be certain you can write the scholarships providers to confirm. For some scholarship programs because of the number of people involved they often will reply only successful applicants. To be on a safe side will apply check to know when you should be expecting results.

Scholarshp for African Writers

The Miles Morland Foundation (MMF)  will give up to three Morland Writing Scholarships per year starting next year (2014).
The scholarships will be open to anyone born in Africa or whose parents were born in Africa. If you want to write a full length book, either fiction of nonfiction, this is a fantastic opportunity. Here is a bit about the scholarship.
The scholars will receive a grant of £18,000 (about N 4.5 million), paid in monthly instalments  over the course of one year

What the scholar must do in return

In return for this the scholars will agree that 20% of whatever they subsequently receive from what they write during the year of the scholarship will be paid to the MMF which may be used to support other promising writers and possibly to expand the scholarship scheme in later years.

To qualify for the scholarship a candidate must submit a piece of published work, or an excerpt from a piece of published work, of between two and seven thousand words to be evaluated by a panel set up by the MMF which will include MMF trustees and past participants in the Caine Prize.
The scholarships will be awarded based on these submissions although the Foundation may also wish to question certain candidates or ask for other work.
Proposed Work

The candidates will be expected to submit a brief description of the work they intend to write during the scholarship year (ideally 200 – 500 words).
It should be a new work, not a work in progress.
The proposed work must be in English as must all candidacy submissions.
Also a statement of fewer than 100 words about yourself and your background should be included.
It is not the intention of the MMF to give editorial or publishing advice to scholars.
They will have to find their own agents and publishers although it is to be hoped that over the years the Morland Scholarships will come to be recognized as an incubator of talent. Works which relate to Africa are likely to be preferred by the judges.
Scholarship Requirement

The only condition imposed on the scholars during the year of their scholarship is that they must write.
They will be asked to submit by e-mail at least 10,000 new words every month until they have finished their book.
The scholarship will terminate if a scholar fails to submit the required work on time unless prior authorization has been received.
The Foundation is happy to support fiction or non-fiction but not poetry, plays or screen-plays.
The scholarship is intended for writers who want to write a full-length book of 80,000 words or more.
The closing date for submissions for the first series of writing scholarships will be October 31st 2013.
The scholarships will be announced in December 2013 and will run for the whole of calendar 2014.
The Trustees reserve the right to vary the terms and requirements of the scholarships at their discretion.
