If you’re planning to study in US, then there are plenty of options available for you. Although acquiring a scholarship for US is relatively more difficult for MS courses when compared to scholarships for PhD courses. Scholarships for PhD courses are available in plenty. However, you can still receive a US scholarship by obtaining a good TOEFL and GRE score, maintaining a good CGPA, creating good LoR’s, SoP’s, CV and acquiring research credentials in terms of research papers etc.
Getting a US scholarship is subjective i.e. there is no guarantee of receiving a scholarship. Therefore, the best way to proceed is to improve your overall profile as much as possible. While looking at the applications for scholarships :- colleges will be looking at your grades, essays, GRE scores, TOEFL scores and research. Try to maintain a good overall profile in all these departments. If you are behind in any one department, you can compensate for the same by achieving well in other fields. For example, if you have a low GPA, you can compensate for it by exhibiting a good research background, a high GRE score, a well drafted SOP and so on.
