scholarships In USA


Many scholarships and bursaries are also offered by the American government, American universities/ colleges, non-profit associations and various private and public establishments as well.

Most such scholarships are open to meritorious international students to help them fund their studies; these financial aids can be partial or fully paid, depending on the criteria, course and the institution. 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 expenditure. Almost all American universities and colleges have their own list of scholarships for Indian students.

Most scholarships are highly competitive and students with excellent academic record will be chosen. When applying to any of these scholarships, make sure you check the criteria carefully, along with the application closing date. We recommend you start with the scholarship application at least 8-12 months before your preferred intake begins.
