When is the right time to look for funding or scholarships opportunities?


I am going to take my GRE soon and plan to apply to US universities next year. Should I start looking for scholarships now ? I have heard scholarships in US are a lengthy process and not easy to get.

There is never a definitely time to do something, so I would say depending on your target school’s deadline, your test dates, etc., and most importantly, application deadline for the scholarship(s) that you want.

Here are the some of the sites for searching for scholarship cash
