WeMakeScholars – an ultimate guide for scholarships5 years ago Shalini B
Today, with the world growing at a blistering pace and the people coming close with cut throat competition in every sector, each one of us aspires to be among the top. Well, carrying these aspirations in mind, and a goal to achieve something big in life, everyday thousands of students choose to travel to a foreign nation, to pursue their higher studies in their chosen field.
But, is it really that simple? Huge amounts of money has to be invested and a lot of time and effort has to be put in, to actually reap all the benefits that a degree of a foreign nation can give a student. But, what if you come to know, about a firm that is striving towards helping such parents and students, to reduce their expenses over the studies, while the students can solely concentrate on what they have been sent for.
WeMakeScholars.com is website that guides provides information about scholarships to students flying abroad for higher studies. From career counselling, to assisting in getting admissions to providing scholarship to deserving candidates, they do it all.
WeMakeScholars is started by three like-minded people, Damini Mahajan, Arjun R. Krishna, and Vinay Nair who took all the initiatives necessary to begin this firm and make it the world’s best platform for aspiring scholars.
On the 29th of April 2015, at Kerala House, in the presence of Mr. Shashi Tharoor, who attended the launch as the chief guest, this social initiative went live and open for all ambitious students. “There has always been a gap in the available opportunities and information that is reaching out to students. So we teamed up with few other friends studying in Europe and US, to start this firm,” says Damini Mahajan, at the launch, when asked about the beginning of this enterprise.
As of today, this web portal has a huge listing of foreign universities and registered students, and a listing of about 2000 active scholarships from numerous reputed universities across the globe. The website also has internships information published, providing international experience to thousands of Indians, who are seeking out for such opportunities.
“In the last two years we have helped more than one lakh students and it’s all free,” says Ms. Mahajan. She also states that apart from guiding students directly, this portal also connects aspiring students with successful people, who have gone abroad through scholarships, for direct hands on experience sharing and guidance on different aspects relating to application process, writing SOPs, eligibility criteria’s etc.
“We also have more than 50 mentors who benefitted from the website and are willing to share their experiences.” Says the co-founder of WeMakeScholars.com.
If you are among those who are also planning to go abroad for further studies, then WeMakeScholars is just the perfect place for guidance.
