Higher education is expensive and more often than not, students have to take student loans to pay for tuition and other associated expenses. So, when they leave college or university, they are burdened with loans that they have to repay quickly. This is where scholarships can prove to be a boon for students. Meritorious students benefit the most from scholarships that help them pay for higher education.
The fact that scholarships don’t have to be repaid like student loans make them highly coveted and students vie with each other to get them. The process of applying for scholarships differs from college to college. For instance, ARCH College of Design and Business, hosts All India Entrance Examination for Design (AIEED) – Scholarship Aptitude Test (SAT) for students interested in pursuing courses in design at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
