When should International Students Apply for the Best Chance at a Scholarship? (Video)

Nate from Nomad Credit explains that it is best for international students to apply early in the school application process so that they may have the best chance to be awarded a scholarship.

  • Scholarships usually have limited funds to award to students for a given academic year.
  • Often, scholarships will require that a student know where they are going to attend school before they can award money to that student.
  • Therefore, it is best to know where you are going to school as soon as it is possible.
  • Otherwise, the scholarship funds available for a certain scholarship may already have been given out and you may miss out on that scholarship.
