For the international scholarships, most of South Sudanese who have interest to pursue their studies are stranded on their way, What can a poor student do to get all these kinds of scholarship? i am asking this because the gap between poor and rich is widen here in South Sudan. I am 29 years old and very poor and have interest to study abroad. I completed my secondary School since 2003 and could not proceed with my studies due to all these obstacles preventing me from studying.
