I am planning to apply for scholarships to undertake a Master's course in Europe (I am from Argentina). However, in many applications I notice that students are asked to answer some questions that are not (at least directly) related to academia. Some of these questions could be:
- Introduce yourself in less than X words.
- What are your interests apart from your study?
- How would you contribute to the institution if you were granted the scholarship?
I don't really know how to address these questions, as they are quite vague. Am I supposed to introduce myself from an academic standpoint? What kind of interests that are NOT related to education would be suitable to mention if I am applying for a Master's scholarship? How can a Master's student contribute to an institution (I get this for a PhD candidate, but for MSc...)?
Any orientation regarding any of these topics would be highly appreciated, as I don't really know how universities abroad work in these matters.
