  1. I have been waiting for scholarship for months now and I have also deffered my admission from 3 U.S. universities for Masters in Computer Science for August Admission and I am solely dependant on this scholarship and I keep checking the website each and every day. I was contacting the scholarship officer very often to know about when the applications would open and he said that there was no order passed for them to start the applications this year so far. When I asked him if I can take loan and later apply for scholarship online, I was told that I can’t do that. I have to be here for the entire process until the scholarship gets sanctioned. With all this covid around I have lost hopes completely that we would be given the scholarship this year or be it in the coming years. Please make other plans to fulfill your dream to study abroad, if you haven’t already. Reach out to me on my mail id, so that we can connect and see what other scholarships we can avail.
