It is little secret that the US is one of the most expensive nations in which to pursue higher education. But don't let that put you off, as there are hundreds of opportunities to gain funding for your studies.
As an international student you won’t be eligible for funding intended specifically for US nationals. However, as US universities prioritize internationalization, the number of international scholarships to study in the US has grown.
Below is a selection of US scholarships for international students, some funded by the US government, some funded by private organizations and some funded by specific institutions. Good luck with your applications!
