International Students

Below are opportunities open to international students who want to study in the US. Normally it is best to start by applying for admission to a U.S. college or university. If accepted, apply for financial assistance through that school's financial aid and international offices. For additional third-party scholarships, see below.

Education USA

We highly recommend that students contact their local Education USA office for help securing local scholarships.
