African Scholar

I get asked quite frequently about how to get a scholarship to study in the UK. Sadly I know little about this, but in the nick of time comes:

tristanreed: African Scholar: info on scholarships for African students, colleges and universities, etc. http://bit.ly/bvCYkS (via @cblatts)

Here’s a thought – there is some evidence to suggest that the prospect of emigration and considerably higher returns to education can increase investment in human capital, outweighing the effect on a nation’s stock of human capital through the emigration itself.

Could better information about scholarship opportunities have a similar effect?

Could a bit of clever marketing both increase the quality of students received by Western universities, and raise investments by individuals in education in poor countries?
