  26. Am sorry but didn’t you all read the requirements. If you are eligible then apply not posting messages here begging to be considered. You can attach a statement note on why you should be considered. Also, the written English of some applicants is nothing to write home about. The selection team going through your applications would not be impressed especially its a scholarship for postgraduate studies. Aren’t you going to write your thesis in English? Take time to at least edit you message to create a good impression. All the best. P.S You are the ones looking for a scholarship so attaching your phone no and email is not going to help.
