(Editor) I am a 3 times winner of a fully funded scholarship and studied abroad in top Universities without paying any single penny. I hold a Ph.D. degree in engineering and enjoyed the benefit of studying in most prestigious institutes. It is my passion to write on topics that help students to understand how they can find and apply for scholarships abroad and how they can conduct their academic research work effectively. It is my hobby to write for the students who are interested to inquire about what is it like to study in German Universities. There are various scholarships offered by the German education system to international students and I think it is a good thing to share easy tips that students may adapt to win those scholarships to get a chance to study in Germany.
