A higher education scholarship made specially for school leavers

Higher education is essential. Merit is always appreciated and should be encouraged to flourish, irrespective of economic condition. This is where scholarships play a vital role. They lessen the burden of rising higher education cost.

Well, scholarships do much more than lessening the economic burden actually. They help students focus on studies rather than worrying about tuition fees. They also remove the requirement of taking education loans which comes in handy when students start off their career.
