Hi everyone, I have been searching and googling since November, last year 2012 trying to get a grant, scholarship or financial support, but it seems like my situation doesn't really match any scholarships offered or maybe, I was not on the right site or link. I'm really wanting to further my education to Masters Degree in Education (with a leadership and Management Specialism). I found this online, Masters Degree in Education offered by the Open University in the Uk.
It is costly and financially, I will not be able to pay the cost. So here I am looking and searching for grant and scholarship online.
I'm from the Philippines and currently I'm working here in the North of Thailand (Isan Province) as a teacher. I have been teaching in a private school since 2011. Before that, I taught English as well as managed some private local schools back in Vientiane, Laos. I lived and worked there for 9 years before moving here in Northern Thailand. Vientiane city was a very nice, quiet place to live and work back then in 2002. I really enjoy teaching English especially in developing countries. I have so much dream of helping these countries in upgrading their English Programs, helping children to get a better future, providing trainings and maybe in management and the only way to do so is to upgrade my education.
This is why I need some support. I'm only earning 20,000 Bhat/ month (equivalent to 600 $) and a little bit of extra money from my special class after school. I saved a bit here and there for this course but unfortunately the amount of roughly 2,000 ++ British pound a year (according to the UK Open University adviser, whom I've spoken with early this year) for a 3 years Masters Degree Course online is too much for me to carry. My parents will not be able to support me as they are not rich enough and I won't be able to borrow money from banks or other Institutions.
So please, for those who knows or have had supports from organizations/institutions, your advise, links and or sites will be of much help. I will be joining in some forums around as well to gather more information and get some chances.
