“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.
