In the last few years, the demand for  educational scholarships has considerably increased. Interested students can apply for these scholarships knowing that they have plenty of options to choose from.

Following are a few things you need to consider before applying for Educational Scholarships in Ahmedabad:

● Make sure that you send applications to colleges where your grades fit in the top 25 percent of the student body. Many college admissions and aid officers focus on the strength of their applicants’ grades. You should apply to the colleges that offer generous need-based aid. 

● Look for merit scholarships; Search the college's website to see if there are any specific merit scholarships for which you might qualify. 

● Always confirm about the tenure of the scholarship you have applied for. In international schools of Ahmedabad, there are multiple scholarships which are offered for specific duration. Merit scholarships are an academic award, so to qualify, you need to have high grades.

● Ask about renewal terms. Certain educational scholarships have high renewal grade obstacles which prevents some students from being able to qualify for future years, they do this to save the scholarship money. To avoid these problems you can apply for scholarships with easier renewal terms. 

● It is important to compare net prices, before choosing among colleges. Subtract grants and scholarships from the total cost of attendance which includes tuition, fees, room, board, books, and transportation. It often occurs that the college offering the biggest merit scholarship turns out to have the highest net price because its tuition fee is higher. 

● You can also try negotiating with the colleges; in case you have received admission letters from multiple universities, and your priority college has a higher net price than a competitor. It is well known that some institutions are willing to match a merit grant offered to the student by another school. Although this can happen only when schools that do consider bargaining typically match offers from colleges they consider as good or better than their own.

Let’s have a look at some scholarships that are offered by top schools in Ahmedabad.

The following are the list of educational scholarships available for students:
