There are merit-based and need-based scholarships offered by the university. Refer to this link -
To be considered for any scholarship offered by the university, you need to secure admission. As for the eligibility criteria, it is different for every scholarship. You will have to search and read about the scholarship in detail before applying. Make sure you fulfill the eligibility criteria, otherwise, you’ll be immediately disqualified.
Since you haven’t mentioned the campus you are aiming for SP Jain School of Global Management, I’m only mentioning the scholarships offered by the Sydney campus -
I won’t be able to write about the eligibility criteria for every scholarship as the scholarships are too many with multiple requirements. However, I can give you some useful pointers that will help you in applying for the relevant ones.
There are two types of scholarships that universities generally offer - Merit-based scholarships and need-based scholarships. Boston University offers both types, whereas SP Jain School offers merit-based scholarships.
The application procedure for the scholarships will also differ depending on when it is granted to the student. There are a few cases in this.
Some scholarships are offered to the student upon securing admission to the university. In this event, the university will send you a mail with all the scholarships you are eligible for after you have applied to the university. There are also some entrance-based scholarships for which you will be automatically considered after you have successfully submitted your application. All these scholarships are merit-based, meaning you need to have a strong academic profile to be eligible for them.
Some merit-based scholarships require a separate application. For example, some scholarships that Boston University offers require a separate application. It will also have a deadline. The application might require you to submit an essay or a letter of reference.
As I mentioned above, the eligibility criteria for each scholarship are different. Make sure you fulfill the criteria. For example, Lu Lingzi Scholarship offered by BU is for international students. But preference is given to students from China. This is an example of something you should know before you apply for the scholarship.
There are need-based scholarships as well for which you will have to prove that you need financial assistance, probably by submitting the income proof. Each university sets its own criteria for need-based scholarships and will ask for relevant documents accordingly.
If you are unable to find any scholarships, then contact the department or the university. The Boston University has mentioned on its website that master’s and professional programs offer partial scholarships to students. Most universities keep a handful of scholarships for international students. So, just email the financial aid office or the department office asking for relevant scholarships.
Apart from scholarships, check if the university offers other sources of financial assistance like Teaching Assistantship, Research Assistantship, Graduate Assistantship, or on-campus jobs. In these, you’ll be paid for the work you do via a cheque. The work may include assisting a teacher, performing research, or other departmental jobs. For on-campus jobs, the work and the pay will depend on the job you apply for.
There are scholarships offered by external organizations as well. For example, GyanDhan offers a Postgraduate Scholarship to Indian students to pursue their masters abroad, irrespective of the country and the course. Read about it here. Similarly, there are many organizations that are mentioned in the blog. It is an extensive list that will surely help you.
