Have you ever wondered why many people miss out from interesting opportunities like scholarship positions and jobs?

You could answer that those people do not meet the requirements or they did not pass the screening exercise.

Well, that could be true but there is something else: misinformation, inadequate information or absolute lack of information is the reason many miss out. By the time they get know about certain opportunities, the allowed time had expired.

I doubt you want that to be your own case. Thus to stay updated with every information regarding scholarship and recruitments, you are advised to subscribe to our newsletter or bookmark this page. You can always check back here for more updates.
