It is not an easy task finding someone to sponsor you to go to college or university. If you are really interested in finding a sponsor you should send a letter to any well renowned businessmen or CEOs in your local area. Explain what you want to study and why while making reference to the type of career you hope to have in the future. It may also be useful to include a list of your current grades at school and a statement from your teacher may do no harm either.

Alternatively, you could check with the career service in your high school if any local businesses offer sponsorship to students. The most common route to get funding for educational purposes is to apply for a bank loan if you are planning on attending university.

In addition, a number of colleges and universities offer a number of bursaries and scholarships every year too. Depending on what area of work you hope to study or work in, there may also be opportunities for you to be taken on as an intern and the company may pay for your training and education as a result. These are all things you could talk to your local career service centre about.

If none of these options sound like they would work for you, there is always the option of taking some time out of education to work. This way, you can save up some money for your college fund while gaining valuable work and life experience too.

Given the economic climate, this is going to be more of a challenge than it normally would, as even large companies are tightening their belts and cutting costs wherever they can. Focussing on multinational companies and those who value training highly will be the best idea. They are more likely to retain sponsorship as an investment as they see it as beneficial to themselves, and its cost will be a drop in the ocean for them.

The first consideration is deciding what to major in and how you hope this will help you realise your career ambitions. These decisions will have a big influence on which companies to approach and their likelihood of taking you up on your request. For example, if you want to become a managing director of a company, you may choose a business and management course and then choose a company which has a relevance to your chosen area (in this case most large companies will rate this subject highly). Another method is to ask to do work experience with a relevant company, ask to meet with a senior member of the company to discuss your progression and ask what they would consider important to reach your ambition. If it is thought a university education is needed, they may well be prepared to sponsor you as a valued member of their team.

As mentioned earlier this may be difficult at present but there are other ways of funding university such as grants and loans. It may also be worth looking into sports/ music scholarships.

An extremely effective way to find a sponsor is to go on net and surf the websites of filthy rich and generous people who are willing to sponsor education for financially-challenged people. An example is bill gates and Donald trump. You can also write and request certain charitable organizations to sponsor you education. This will be of a great aid to you.

Actually you would not need any kind person's help in this. There are plenty of universities out there who have their student finance and loan schemes. You would have to apply to these schemes as well when you apply for admission. You would have to fulfill certain criteria and you will be granted fee concessions after evaluation from the university administration. So don't look for a sponsor, look for such a university.

J O B   I take it you are healthy enough to work, otherwise  you would already have a sponsor through the state. Work part time and increase classes as you can afford.  Check out grants. Many have strict rules. If you are  a single parent, there is even more help for you with housing and grants. I hope I am not reading you wrong. Surely you are not asking for donations. Forgive my thoughts, and I applaud you for wanting to continue your education. With education having pride makes it even better. Best wishes to you.

You can't get support like this. Normally, you get scholarships from universities and colleges on two basis. One is talent base and the second is need base. Now if you are needy then you have to apply and check your chances for any scholarship by a particular institute.

 There are not much universities in UK which offer scholarships. However you can get free education in countries like Sweden, Denmark, Finland etc. I suggest you to apply one of these countries. You can get all the details about applying for study in Sweden by clicking on this link.
