While there are many scholarship opportunities offered here in the Philippines such as from several government agencies, private and public colleges/universities as well as government-owned banks, nothing beats the fulfillment and satisfaction of being able to study abroad, not to mention if it has always been your dream country.
Well, nothing is really impossible if you have money, but what are scholarships for, right? Scholarships mostly covered all of your expenses from tuition fee, round trip airfare, accommodation, and monthly stipend. Honestly, I also want to study in international universities specifically in Japan, South Korea or France, but my lazy-ass and brain could never afford.
