Mr. Sreng Mao, an acting country director, gives suggestions on how to be a scholarship consultant.
“He or she, of course, needs to know a lot of information on scholarships and clearly understand the needs and characteristics of each scholarship, and how they are different,” Sreng Mao said.
“After that, he or she needs to know the procedure of selecting a scholarship holder in order to give advice to the youth who want to apply for them and advise the students in competing for them,” explained Sreng Mao.
“Besides that, a scholarship consultant should be one who applied for and won a scholarship himself,” said Sreng Mao.
In addition, Sreng Mao also added that general knowledge and experience in any additional field can help a scholarship consultant give advice to the students so that they would not choose the wrong scholarship.
Mr. Sreng Mao recommended that all the students who want to be a scholarship consultant to be able to give good and proper advice to the scholarship contestants because if the advice is useful, the contestants will be successful.
