  1. Hey everyone,,, I'm currently looking for PhD scholarships abroad. My desired research is multi-disciplinary & specific, so it's not easy to find professors who are specialized & willing to supervise me. It's something about human cultural evolution, & children's value formation. My current scheme in searching for scholarships is: search for professors who have relevant research interests --> find their universities --> find out if their universities offer fully-funded PhD programs & stipends so I can apply to them --> email the professor to see if she's interested, so I can apply to the university. However, sometimes I find announcements about university scholarships, like for ex., the Swiss government scholarships for international students. Do you think if I apply to such scholarships, & if I get accepted, would it be easy to find professors then (assigned in the university(s) of that scholarship) who are specialized & willing to work with me in that kind of research? Or should I only stick to the first scheme of applying to universities?
  2. I'm currently looking into schools to get my masters in wildlife biology, but my anxiety has had me stuck and now I'm falling behind. I haven't actually contacted any professors yet First, what exactly are my odds of getting into a program? Most are requesting GPA after the first 60 semester hours so 3.36 and I have an average GRE score, so I'm considering retaking. I got my B.S. in December of 2014 and unfortunately have not had any luck with a related jobs :/ I've been working food service to save up some money the last few years. Second, When applying to a lab, all professors want a page written about my research interests. While this is a fair enough request, just how specific should I be? I find that I could very easily write several pages on an abundance of topics I find interesting. Would the professors like that I am so open to different topics that I would surely fit the needs of their grant? Or would they see me as unfocused and prefer a single topic that's practically a research project waiting to happen?
