This primer is an outcome of sharing of experiences by professionals from Developing Countries who secured a degree in the Environment and Development Sector from universities across US and Europe on full financial assistance. The primer spreads the knowledge of the process that these individuals went through to actually achieve their goals. To put it simply, it does not mention anything which was not experienced first hand.
The primer is meant for students and professionals, especially the from Indian continent, having the zeal to study in the United States. Since the primer is written in a process oriented manner, it would prove to be useful for citizens of developing countries since the application process for US universities largely remains the same and most people from developing countries do find it difficult to finance themselves for higher degrees from abroad.
Some of the themes covered are:
- Why choose the ESD fields to study abroad?
- What type of career can you expect?
- How to get started
- Application material
- Examinations required
- Writing to professors
- Financial assistance
- Getting a Visa
