The International Summer School (ISS) Scholarship 2012, Norway
The International Summer School (ISS) offers intensive Master’s and Bachelor’s courses over six weeks. We welcome more than 550 students from nearly 100 countries from late June to early August.
Many applicants will find that they are academically qualified to attend ISS, but they will not meet the requirements set by the scholarship donors. Many scholarship applicants are academically qualified to attend the ISS, but they do not meet the requirements for a scholarship. As a result, the application will be rejected.
To be a successful scholarship candidate you will need to demonstrate:
· that your academic background is related to the course you wish to take;
· that your professional background/goals are related to the course you wish to take;
· financial need;
· personal qualities that make you a good representative of your country.
Competition for scholarships is high. Many scholarship applicants are rejected in the Pre-Application phase. At this point, the applicant can switch the status to “self-paying” or “sponsored” and try to find the funding from a source outside the ISS.
