I got a job offer from company A, thus I have tendered my 2 months resignation notice to my current company. I still have one more month to go till I join the new company. But today I have received my long awaited scholarship offer to a masters program.
There seems to be a small problem. This scholarship is only for unemployed and full time masters student. I really want to grab this golden opportunity. Sadly I have sign an agreement with company A and stated that I would join them on early this March.
How do I tell them that I can't join them? Would my name be black listed? Or do I not have any choice but to throw away my master's program and join the new company?
I'm really looking for experience, personal views and suggestions.
