Resources for non-U.S. students
Scholarships for non-U.S. students
Some public and private universities offer financial incentives for international students to join their programs. Most of the institutional aid available to international students is reserved for graduate study in the form of scholarships. Because it is uncommon for U.S. institutions to offer aid to undergraduate international students, such scholarships are often quite competitive.
There are free scholarship databases as well as private, corporate, nonprofit, and government scholarship funds that serve undergraduate and graduate international students. Some scholarship databases charge fees to users, and other databases provide their services at no cost. Take a look at a few resources listed below:
- International Education Financial Aid (Iefa)
- The College Board
- International Student
- The Scholarship Hub
- Postgraduate Studentships
- UK Gov Student Finance
