  • Scholarship Opportunities To Study At US Universities

    A lot of students hoping to studying in the US give up on their dream, of the primary reasons among them is lack of funds. Given how higher education in the US is going through the roof, especially for international students, it is better to plan your expenses before you arrive in the country or even before you apply for your visa. Although competitive, being awarded a scholarship can help an international student fund a huge portion of their total tuition fees. Apart from scholarships, getting a part-time job or applying for an education loan may somehow ease your financial burden of studying in the US.

    Of the total number of international students that go to the United States for further studies, a great number of them make up for the total expense by getting financial aid/ scholarships offered by the US government or higher education institutions. Almost all US universities offer scholarships based on an applicant's standardised scores or academic background. According to the Fulbright Commission, over 600 US universities grant scholarships worth $20,000 or more to international students. They are usually evaluated based on either financial need, academic merit, or extracurricular contribution.

    What is the criteria for applying to scholarships to study in the US for Indian students?

    The most important criterion for most scholarships is a good academic score, however, it also depends on factors such as your chosen destination, subject and level. In some scholarships, factors like extracurricular activities, and volunteering can also be used to advantage. Keep in mind that every scholarship has its eligibility criteria. While in some, a mere application may suffice, while for others you may have to fulfil several other conditions. For instance, in research-centric programs, you may have to submit written assignments. Do not hesitate to contact the university admission centre if you have any doubts.

    What amount of money is available through scholarships?

    The amount of money available and the type of award varies between institutions. Certain research programs may provide up to 100% of the tuition fee besides covering a part of your living expenditures. You may experience higher competition when you apply for government scholarships in comparison to the university scholarships. So, we suggest you start with the procedure about 8-12 months before your preferred intake begins.
