whenever i have to communicate with the “scholarship bureau”, it makes me want to quit everything, start a new life, and then shoot myself (in that specific order).
i’ve applied for a scholarship again this autumn, and got a letter saying they needed my master’s certificate in order to process my request. they actually wanted evidence that i had finished my studies, so they could think about giving me a scholarship for finishing my studies.
the only aspect that separates them from the vogons is that (hopefully) they won’t read their poetry at me.
in the end, however, it’s worth the hassle.
