International scholarships are a fantastic opportunity for international students to secure funds for their study abroad plans. There are countless international scholarship opportunities for African students to consider as more universities have realised the importance of diversity in their student bodies over time.

But where do you even begin?

How do you decide which scholarship to apply for, which course to enrol in, and which important papers to gather?
