Is what I need
From you, My Lord
To do good deeds
Help me succeed
End caste and creeds
And all to be freed! – Reshi Ambreen, Poet
This beautiful poem reflects the true anxiety of a person who want to make big in life but faces the dearth of resources to do so. There are plenty of students around the world who have their own passions and areas of interest which they like to explore and excel at. But many of them do not have the privilege to turn their dream into a reality since they face the dearth of the most vital resource- Money. Lack of money kills dreams and makes people suffer; it forces them to live in penury whole life. Scholarships thus provide a ray of hope for those who come from an underprivileged background and give them the much needed wings to fly high.
These are some of the best scholarships for the International students to study in Australia.
