International Undergraduate Scholarships

Professional organizations, civic groups, corporations and colleges offer international undergraduate scholarships. Select programs provide funding for foreign students attending U.S. schools, while others provide funding for students to attend schools in their country of residency or abroad. Each scholarship program has its own eligibility requirements and funding guidelines and can limit applicants by age, field of study, marital status or gender. Award amounts vary, depending on the scholarship, ranging from partial tuition funding, to the full cost of attendance.
