What Is a Student Visa?

A student visa is a legal immigration document issued to students by another country that allows them to study for a certain period of time. Student visas are commonly used by students at colleges, universities, and specialty institutions. Prospective students are generally required to apply for and obtain a student visa before they start school in the host country. These visas are considered non-immigrant visas, which means holders must abide by certain rules to retain their

status and stay in the country. Being granted a student visa doesn’t necessarily grant individuals the same rights and privileges as citizens, such as voting.
What is Scholarship?

A scholarship is a form of financial aid awarded to students for further education. Generally, scholarships are awarded based on a set of criteria such as academic merit, diversity and inclusion, athletic skill, and financial need.
A young man (in bowtie) receives a scholarship at a ceremony. Scholarship criteria usually reflect the values and goals of the donor of the award, and while scholarship recipients are not required to repay scholarships, the awards may require that the recipient continue to meet certain requirements during their period of support, such maintaining a minimum grade point average or engaging in a certain activity (e.g., playing on a school sports team for athletic scholarship holders).
Scholarships also range in generosity; some cover partial tuition, while others offer a ‘full-ride’, covering all tuition, accommodation, housing and others.

There are many types of study-abroad scholarships for Bangladeshi students available. These scholarships are categorised according to their individual talent. Students need to be at the top of their skills to avail these scholarships.

Being a merit student is a proud moment for students since they have earned the recognition and acknowledgement for their efforts and hard work. This is one of the biggest benefits as it reflects their true academic abilities to their future employers.

Merit-based scholarships are awarded to students who excel in academics. Students must have a top score to avail these scholarships.

Need-based scholarships are for students who hail from financially weak families.

Government-funded scholarships are given by the government of a particular country. The eligibility is students must meet the academic requirements set by them.

Private-funded scholarships are given by private bodies or organisations to eligible students. These private organisationS have strict eligibility criteria.

Academic Scholarships are offered by universities, colleges and private organisations. Students with excellent academic records are only eligible for Academic scholarships.

To avail this scholarship, students need more than an overall average score in academics. Other factors like community service and extracurricular activities are also considered for this scholarship.

Also, can you fathom that each country allocates millions of dollars for scholarships to fund international students’ education? Besides education cost, these scholarships also cover students’ air tickets, accommodation, health insurance, etc.
