Managing to apply for a scholarship requires the commitment, disposition, attitude and determination of the applicant. Each program asks for specific requirements that are related to the objectives of the institution that grants the scholarships and the career that you want to study.

If you are interested in applying for a scholarship, you must provide the information that the program requests, submit the required documents, study, win exams, and attend interviews, among others. But there is something else, meeting the objectives is the most important thing, but your attitude towards the process will be decisive in order to be elected.

A selection committee is made up of a group of experts in the area, who carry out a fair and transparent selection process.

The main function of the selection committees is to review and evaluate the scholarship application files to verify that they meet the requirements established by the scholarship institution.

Define the career or area you want to study according to your vocation. Scholarship programs favor those who have clear goals because they apply what they learn better. Research what organizations or scholarship programs exist for what you want to study. Get to know the cooperant and verify that your objectives coincide with those of that institution. A year in advance, make a plan or calendar in which you write down scholarship programs, application deadlines, and requirements. Apply to more than one scholarship, do it with determination and a clear purpose on how you will apply what you study. Read the calls in detail and pay attention to the “answers to frequently asked questions” section of each program to which you apply. Review the requirements and confirm that you meet all of them. Some scholarships are not complete, so before you apply, clearly establish how you will cover expenses that are not paid by the scholarships. When you prepare your file, take a good look at all the details: good presentation and that it contains all the documents in the order in which they are requested. Prepare your essay, project your personality, social commitment, leadership and your life plan into it. Convince the reader of your qualities, of the good application that you will make of what you have learned and how you will project it to society. Make sure that the letters of recommendation that you include in your file are from people who know you well, so that they best describe your characteristics and skills. Do extracurricular activities that reflect your social commitment, leadership and academic vocation. During interviews, respond clearly, concisely and consistently. That your answers agree with what you expressed in your essay and your entire file. Request the scholarship, explain the reason for which you request it. Assume the commitment of your application process, deliver all your paperwork in the stipulated time and attend the interviews on time.
