Your Alumni Network

Youโ€™re reading an excerpt of Admitted by Soundarya Balasubramani. Written by an Ivy League graduate from India, this is the proven guide for students worldwide looking to pursue undergraduate or graduate study abroad in the U.S., Canada, or Europe. Purchase for instant access to the guide and other exclusive resourcesโ€”including sample SOPs, sample resumes, scholarship lists, and a private community with other readers.

More often than not, if a senior from your university obtained a scholarship, they would add it to their public profile on LinkedIn or another social networking site. An alternative is to check with your universityโ€™s career center. The career center watches hundreds of students travel abroad to study every year, many of whom receive scholarships and grants. If they arenโ€™t crowdsourcing information from the alumni yet, you need to ask them to begin right away. Apart from gathering knowledge, they can also look for endowments from alumni who might be financially well-off.
