Many international students want to go to university in Australia, the UK, US, or other Western countries. However, they do not know there are other awesome study opportunities to pursue in different parts of the world. For instance, in Asia there are also some renowned colleges and universities in which to receive top-notch education. And to receive the funds to go there, you can find scholarships for foreign students. These are provided by the governments of Asian countries.

  • Japanese Government Scholarship

A large number of scholarship opportunities are created by the Japanese government for students from abroad who intend to get their higher education at a local university. Both undergraduates and researchers can take advantage of them. The best thing about the Japanese Government Scholarships is that they cover travelling costs, school fees, and allowance.

  • Taiwan Government Scholarship

Masters, Bachelors, and PhD students can get a scholarship from the Taiwan Government by applying for it via the local Ministry of Education. It offers financial help to international students currently studying in Taiwanese universities and colleges. Both the academic fees and the subsistence allowance are included in this Scholarship Program.

  • Korean Government Scholarship

Just like Japan and Taiwan, Korea has a great Scholarship Program for students that is designed to support students from other countries by providing them with substantial funds that will cover all the costs associated with advanced studies at a higher educational institution.

The Link between Ethnicity and Affirmative Action in Admissions http://edtechpost.com/the-link-between-ethnicity-and-affirmative-action-in-admissions-2/ http://edtechpost.com/the-link-between-ethnicity-and-affirmative-action-in-admissions-2/#comments Mon, 01 Jun 2015 21:07:23 +0000 http://edtechpost.com/?p=4013

Minorities and affirmative action are often interlinked, but are the ethnicities who need it the most reaping all its benefits in admissions? Maybe not.

Asian Americans

Sadly, many universities and colleges in the U.S. decide to exclude Asian Americans from receiving any affirmative action benefits. That is because this particular racial group is already represented very highly on campuses nationwide. However, a close look at Asian America easily reveals some distinct class divides in the ethnic groups. For example, people with Southeast Asian origins often have significantly lower income and are generally less educated than their South or East Asian counterparts. Given this, is it fair to apply the same affirmative action policies to a Japanese-American and a Vietnamese-American college applicant?

African Americans

The biggest class divides within the African American community is between those native to the U.S. and those who were born abroad but came to study in America. The latter typically achieve much higher incomes than the former, and the level of education differs, too. In fact, statistics shows that African immigrants are the most educated people in the U.S. In America’s elite universities and colleges, most of the blacks are either from abroad or children of foreign parents. Does this indicate that affirmative action in the U.S. is failing to properly serve the descendants of slaves?

Is there a solution?

It is probably sensible for colleges with multicultural student bodies to start treating Asian Americans and African Americans as diverse groups and not homogenous entities. More attention must be paid to the background of each applicant.

Every of the following colleges is placed highly in American college rankings, and every of them provides a strong winning combination of rich student life, quality academics, attractive facilities, plus strong name recognition.

Bates College

All the students of Bates College get lots of interaction with their class as well as faculty, because Bates College places a distinctive emphasis on interactive seminar classes. Other areas that the school highly values are research, senior thesis work, and service-learning. The college has been supporting the liberal education spirit since its founding – Bates College was established by Maine abolitionists in 1855.

Bowdoin College

This school is located in a small town in Maine – Brunswick. Bowdoin College takes pride in its fabulous location and the excellence of academic services and programs offered to students. On Orr’s Island, just 8 miles away from the school, there is Bowdoin’s Coastal Studies Center that is 118 acres big.

Bryn Mawr College

This is one of the top colleges for women. Bryn Mawr is one of the members of the famous Tri-College Consortium, along with Haverford and Swarthmore. Between the three campuses there are regular shuttles. This college is very close to Philadelphia, so students are allowed to register for courses at the nearby University of Pennsylvania. Bryn Mawr is known not only for its strong academics, but it’s also rich in traditions and history.

Reed College

And finally, this is a suburban college about 15 minutes from downtown Portland Oregon. You’ve probably heard that Reed consistently ranks very high for the number of PhD students and the number of Rhodes scholars. The classes are high-quality, and they’re held for small groups.
