There is a minimum amount of coursework involved when acquiring and maintaining a Master’s scholarship. Around 40 credit hours are needed towards coursework. That means that part-time students will have a tougher time finding Master fully funded scholarships that will guarantee enough funding to pay off their tuition coverage. If the student is full-time, they will receive the maximum benefits from a fully funded scholarship automatically, because they already have the 40 hour credit coursework built within their class schedule. Students hardly know about the credit hour difference between fully funded and partially funded, however, full-time attending students will have a better chance at securing a fully funded scholarship.
