Scholarships in the USA

According to reports, there are around 1.1 million international students in USA hailing from almost all the countries across the world. Out of them, most of the students are awarded with some sort of financial assistance. Keeping funding an important factor in the study in the US, there are certain strategies that can be used for choosing universities:

  • Choosing public universities can minimize the cost.
  • Selecting universities that offer scholarships to international students.
  • Attending a community college first and then transferring to a 4-year institution can also cost less.
