    Basketball or Football?

    Purely achedemic scholarships are generally small and require research {to find them} on the part of the student. If you are going into Physics or Math the usual route is a Teaching or Research assitentship

    I have little knowledge about that, can you please explain deeper and give links?

    Don't take this the wrong way, But.

    YOU have to take an act part and look for yourself. Asking other people to find scholarships for you, is just setting yourself up for failure. Do a web search, call up a physics department at any Univeristy and ask them about what kind of scholarships they offer. Do the work yourself and you know it's done correctly, Ask someone else and well, it's a crap-shoot.

    totally agree with the above comment you have to find it all out your self.. I know I'm a UK student looking to do a PhD in the US... Physics is very broad what do you want to specialise in?
