  1. There are alot of qualified people but only few will manage to apply. I would like if government can do something to help even those who cannot get things like pass ports in a short time because some people really need assistance. Thank you

  2. The issue of age is really something nowadays. I get surprised cause age should not be a limiting factor or whatsoever. Henceforth, such scholarship must be open to all

    • Let all those who qualify apply, many who completed two, three years ago are not in college due to inability to pay fees etc. So such scholarship should be open to all.

  3. we are living in a modern world let`s stop issues of applying via hand written and delivery, why cant we adopt online application?
