How To Apply For Scholarships In The US

Scholarships are like gifts. They don’t need to be repaid, they are extremely helpful and for Indian students aspiring to study in US, they provide a chance to bring down the financial burden considerably. Because higher education in the US is expensive, students who wish to study there should ensure that they have gone through all the routes and possibilities to apply and obtain scholarships to ensure that their financial burden is manageable.

‘American Dream’ starts with education in US. Since scholarships are invaluable, students can take solace from the fact that they are available to new immigrants, students going to graduate schools or even for learners returning to college. An important point to remember when applying for scholarships is, scholarships do not require any kind of a fee for applying. If, therefore, a scholarship engine or application asks for credit card information or other financial data, it is best to stay away from there.

One of the first and best sources for financial aid is the college that the student wishes to join. It is advisable that students do thorough research on colleges and financial aid opportunities at Education USA. This service of the U.S. Department of State and the Institute of International Education provides a ton of online information; there is also a frequently updated list of financial aid opportunities and, most usefully, a guide to advising centers in countries around the world, where students can meet face-to-face with experts in who can help students search schools, translate information, and learn about available options.

To understand the amount of money which goes towards scholarships, a simple example is that of the University of Oregon which awards more than $1 million every year to students born outside the US. - See more at: ... RqaB3.dpuf

This is the best website I have found for scholarships! You can narrow your search search by school, major and country so you only see scholarships that fit your needs.

"Oh, my poor man," exclaimed the kind old lady, "It must be dreadful to be lame. But it would be much worse if you were blind." "You're absolutely right," said the beggar, obviously an old hand at the game." When I was blind, people kept giving me foreign coins."
