The nerdiest way to solve your issues
I’ve been looking for the next step for my career. At the moment, I’m looking for one of three things:
- PhD scholarship;
- Research scholarship.
Finding research scholarships
This article is about the 3rd item on my list: research scholarships. In Portugal, most research scholarships are posted on eracareers but when searching on the website, all types of scholarships (research scholarships for Masters and Bachelors, PhD scholarships, Post-Doc scholarships and so on) are shown together. To aggravate the situation, there is no filter to pick a specific type. This is clearly a small issue but it is annoying enough if you do a lot of research. Here is an example of the results you get when searching for
If you look at the example, you’ll see that not a single one of those results is for someone with a master (what I'm looking for).
Anyway, my hope is that by telling this little story of mine, next time you find yourself in a situation like this, think about what you can do to solve or at least improve it.
