There is no direct relation between jobs and scholarships. Scholarships offer students a chance to obtain the best possible education, irrespective of their financial or social status. This, in turn, helps them to achieve a certain professional value which otherwise would not have been possible for them. Thus the direct advantage of scholarships is in achieving an exceptional academic value which helps in getting better jobs.


Fun fact: there was a research conducted at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Boston) that every extra year of education adds 8.3% extra to the per capita income of any students in their post-qualification career, ref: Esther Duflo and Abhijeet Banerjee.


Also, some major recruiters around the world, provide application advantage to job applicants who've been successful scholars in their time. They even have screening procedures to provide extra weight to the application of scholars for any job.


There are some scholarships which provide teaching positions, research positions and even regular recruitment opportunities led by a scholarship program. Such scholarship programs intake their trainees through scholarships and after training them via scholarships provide them with employment opportunities as well. There is no denying that scholarships have a substantial but indirect influence on job and career, and students who know the value of scholarships are able to use their achievement for employment and career development as well.
