younglions Posted December 13, 2008 Share Posted December 13, 2008 Subject says it all. I understand money for these professional degrees is difficult to come by, but just how difficult? Since I'm interested in public service, I'll likely never be bring in the big bucks and don't want to accumulate a large debt load. I started researching these types of programs a few years ago, and have tried to set myself up as best as possible to earn a scholarship, but I'm unsure if it's enough. What do committees focus on most when awarding scholarships? Academic achievement, work experience, recommendations, GRE scores, essays? I realize it's a combination, but does any one of these components take priority? I have nightmares of mid-career professionals coming in and snatching up the limited money that's available. (I'm 24 with two years of overseas development experience and a couple of internships). Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
