International Student/Study Abroad Scholarships
The decision to attend college in another country can be a difficult one to make. Being far away from your friends and family and being thrust into an unfamiliar environment is tough. Add in the problems of linguistic and cultural differences, even among fairly similar nations, as well as the high cost of studying abroad and you can see how it might be both mentally and emotionally taxing to be an international student. Scholarships and other financial aid can help take care of at least one of these concerns, but knowing where to look for such opportunities can also be a challenge. How do you find international student scholarships? Where do you start looking for money for college if you plan to study internationally? Do you apply for financial aid in your home country or in the country you travel to? What assistance is offered to international students?
Scholarships are the primary form of financial assistance available to students who wish to study in another country. Organizations exist to grant scholarship awards to students from the U.S. who wish to spend anywhere from a semester to four years attending college in another country, as well as students from other countries who wish to complete a portion of their studies in the United States. The best way to find out about international student scholarships and grants is to do a scholarship search. Students should also check with the school they’ll be attending to find out about other available scholarships for international students. Scholarships and other forms of financial aid are out there if you know where to look. Start early and be diligent and you might be surprised by all the international student scholarship opportunities you’ll find.
