Chase your success…. scholarships are waiting for you…….


One a fine morning you find an ad in your newspaper, take the contest and win a “successful life”!!!!. The question here is who is not interested in such rewards? We are not going to neglect such an ad simply, at least we think about it for a moment. Though the ads can be fake sometimes, there are such opportunities for the higher study candidates. You can chase your success by such opportunity and support from the “angel hands”.

Today’s highly competent world made the education so expensive for the common man and the higher studies become a luxury for the middle class. Most of the parents are already in the debt trap by financing to the education of their children and the corporate youth are wearing a tag of educational loan along with the ID card. So people are searching for the remedies like the distance and online mode and many of them getting cheated because of the lack of information about such programs.

Mr. Vikas Sharma, a guy from the rural area of Jharkhand completed his Engineering program from one of the most reputed institutes in India and wishes to get into the research field. But he was forced to take a job in a known cooperate house because of his financial background. He thought that he can do his higher studies after having some financial backups. This is the case of the most of our young talents; they can’t take their desired area because of the economic background.

We are screaming for the lack of R&D programs in our country, but how such a country like India with low GDP/head can go for the advanced technology and research area. How much the Government can contribute, we don’t have an attractive figure in the National GDP also and with a larger population we can’t follow the Finnish experience. So the students have to think some other way to support their educational cost.

There are such opportunities for the higher study aspirants, which offer you help towards a successful career path.
