Scholarship In USA

Degrees in America are expensive, but an abundance of scholarships are available to help international students out. Almost all universities have scholarship programs, most of which are open to applications from international students – although you may need to take SAT/ACT, GRE/GMAT tests. According to the Fulbright Commission, more than 600 American universities offer scholarships worth $20,000 or more up-to 100% to international students. They are typically assessed on academic merit, financial need, or extracurricular contribution.

Types of scholarships

  • University scholarships Most universities will offer some kind of financial aid for international students, so your institution of choice should be your first port of call when considering funding.
  • Financial scholarships: These scholarships are based on the financial need of the students. The majority of these are only available for US residents but some universities give out needs-based scholarships to international students.
  • Merit scholarships:

    For the students who were either academically gifted or top sports players in their high school or excelled in community or entrepreneurial work. Country-based scholarships: These scholarships are targeted at students from developing countries in particular.
  • Government-funded scholarships:

    The United States government offers many scholarship programs for international students.
  • Privately-funded scholarships:

    Sometimes private businesses or donors will fund scholarships for international students. These are also more likely to be targeted at developing countries and minority groups, or in specific areas of study.
  • Part scholarships -

    These can range from a small one-off payment the student can use towards their fees or a larger payment that is staggered to cover certain costs of going to university. For more information on scholarships, please talk to our counselors or check online:
