I am a young woman aged 20 years. I finished my high school in the year 2010. I want to study either health sciences,Biomedicine, Agriculture or forestry. Unfortunately for me I cannot afford the fees because only one of my parents is working and her net pay is E6660.00 ($900).I had applied to study agriculture at the University of Stellenbosch in Cape Town and was admitted for the course but unfortunately for me I was not succesful to get my country’s Government scholarship (Swaziland). Right now I am at home not doing anything. If you could provide some assistance to needy students like me may I please be considered.

jerusalem says:

my name is Jerusalem.i live in Ethiopia.im 17.im a student with a good grades
its always been a dream of mine to study abroad. I really want to study abroad for many reasons,such as for becoming more independent and developing my skills and learning to see the world from a wider perspective.
my parents aren’t very supportive of me studying abroad, because its too expensive. and I don’t want to.. Sometimes I feel so hopeless, like I am running after some impossible things. But I didn’t want to give up on my dreams so quickly,

I feel so hopeless at times and wonder why education has to be so expensive.so please can i get full or free scholarship
iam looking forward for your answer.
thank you.
