Scholarships for Women over 50

You might read the title and think that the scholarships that we will look at are for an extremely specific demographic. This is true. The number of women going to university over the age of 50 is relatively low. There are several reasons for this. One reason is due to biology and society. A large proportion of middle-aged women who now want to study and earn a university degree are doing so because they never had the opportunity to do so, quite simply , they had children.

Obtaining Scholarships in Thailand

Thailand is a very popular tourist destination. It seems as though everyone and their cousin has been there. We rarely hear anything negative coming from their experiences as well.

International Student Scholarships with ASSE

International study is something that many aspire to. There is prestige attached to it after all. It does also allow one to develop as a person in ways. We do notice that people who have spent extensive amounts of time outside of their home country do develop in a unique way. Their horizons are expended and have a better understanding of different cultures. This is why the American Scandinavian Student Exchange (ASSE). It initially started in 1976 as an orgnisation for student exchange programmes between Sweden and the United States. Norway, Denmark, and Finland quickly followed suit.
