Scholarship Explained

Buying for your higher education

A college or university education is one of the most important purchases you (or your parents!) will ever make. This section on Scholarships serves to assist you in finding the most viable means to finance your higher education.

What is education financing?

Education financing is any type of assistance used to pay your college or university fees. There are basically four main types of financing:

  • Scholarship Awards
    This type of aid is also called a GIFT AID, as you are not required to repay the organisation which provides the award. Most scholarships are from government bodies and private colleges/universities.
  • Education Funds
    Scholarships or loans provided by the Government / foundation / private educational institutions / financial institutions to reduce the burden of financing a student's education expenses, whether locally or overseas.
  • Unit Trusts & Insurance Schemes
    These are typically investment schemes that parents undertake for several years to secure financial funding for their child's higher education.
  • Loans
    Loans are financial obligations that must be repaid. Loans are mostly provided by private sector or government bodies.

Financing for Higher Education

The cost of tertiary education does not come cheap, but it is a lifetime investment for your future. Therefore whether your parents can afford your entire or partial cost of tertiary education, you are advised to go through this pathway in order to be competitive in your career advancement. If your family cannot afford the cost, you may work while studying part-time or look for some forms of scholarship, study grant, loan or other sources of financial aid to help you to pay for your education.
