What is the first thought that comes to your mind when you hear of a scholarship? Wouldn’t it be amazing to get an opportunity to complete your studies in a reputable school, like  GIIS, with a massive tuition waiver?

Let us begin with the step-by-step guide on how to apply for a Global Indian International School scholarship.

Step 1

Fill in the application form. The form is available on the GIIS website.

Step 2

Upload all the relevant documents. The documents include;

Class X pre-board or half-yearly mark sheet

Class IX final mark sheet

Passport or a receipt of applied passport

Certificates of extracurricular achievements

If you do not have the mark sheets, you should get the marks printed on your school's letterhead and get it signed by the school principal. Then, you can upload that.

Step 3

Submit your application. Make sure to attach all the required documents and fill out all the needed fields before submitting your application.

The following tips could be of great assistance in filling and submitting your application.

Be honest

You should provide accurate details in your application.

Make sure that you can vouch for every detail that you provide. It might be tempting to sugar coat the information you provide in the attempt to increase your chances of getting the scholarship, but what happens when you are asked to provide evidence? It would be best if you provide information that you can vouch for.

Avoid shortcuts

Most of the time, when one wants something, they would do anything to have it. Avoid the easy way out. Do not assume that you could pay your way into getting the GIIS scholarship and end up being a victim of conmen.

Be honest

You should provide accurate details in your application.

Make sure that you can vouch for every detail that you provide. It might be tempting to sugar coat the information in the attempt to increase your chances of getting the scholarship, but what if you are asked to provide evidence?

References

In case you are asked to include some references, make sure you list reliable references that you are sure would appreciate you.

Once you include a referee, make sure to give them a heads-up so that they are ready in case they are called to provide some information about you. In case you include a reference who is not familiar with you, they might end up contradicting the information you may have already provided.

A scholarship is meant to help finance your education; thus, you are not supposed to pay money to obtain it. You should follow the provided protocols. Do not let your desire of getting the scholarship crowd your reasoning and judgment.

Be aggressive

It would be best to show how much you need the scholarship. You should include all your achievements, no matter how many. Support your accomplishment claims by attaching documents to increase your chances of being considered. It would be best if you let your passion and ambition shine through. Be convincing!

Observe the deadlines

Submit your application before the deadline. Avoid the last-minute rush. Show the urgency of the  scholarship by submitting your application early. Nobody will take you seriously if you submit your application within a few minutes of the deadline. Do not also be one of those who go to the extent of begging for the deadline extension.

Do not hesitate to ask for help

You need to be as precise in your application as possible. In case something is not clear, or you are not sure what you are expected to fill in, ask for help. It can sometimes be overwhelming to do everything yourself. You could even call the school, which has existing employees, to clarify any doubts or queries you may have. Once you fill your application form, you could ask someone to read it out for you. The person may identify mistakes that you were oblivious of.

Review your writing

Your application should be formal. Avoid being casual or submitting one that has grammatical errors. Also, your resume should be appealing and unique from the rest of the applications. Make it neat and well thought. Avoid submitting a shabby application. Once your application has been reviewed, if you are a successful applicant, then you will get shortlisted. Shortlisted students;
