What are the types of scholarships I get
A scholarship can either be fully funded or partially funded. If it is fully funded then, it means all your expenditures with regards to your studies will be taken care of by the scholarship awarded. If it is partially funded, it simply means a part of the expenditure will be taken care of while you do the rest by yourself.

A scholarship can also be merit-based or need-based. If it is merit-based, it is purely based on the scholar's academic or social achievements. If it is need-based, then it is based on the need for assistance by the applicants. Students may need money to pay tuition fees or take care of any other thing in school. The need-based scholarship is always there for them. Receiving of the funds may be done yearly till or just once.
