scholarship opportunities for international students
College scholarships are a great way to fund your education, and they can open doors for you that would otherwise be closed. If you’re an international student, however, starting with a scholarship might seem like an uphill battle. Fortunately, there are many scholarships available to higher education students from around the world! In this article we’ll look at 6 of the best scholarships for international students on their way to college or university:
American University Emerging Global Leader Scholarship
The American University Emerging Global Leader Scholarship is for students from developing countries who are interested in studying at American University. The scholarship will cover tuition, room, board and travel expenses up to $30,000 per year while you’re a student at AU.
The application deadline is June 1st of every year; so if you’re interested in applying for this scholarship—and have an idea of what it takes—you’ll need to start early!
Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program
The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program is a federal program that offers financial assistance to students who are receiving a Federal Pell Grant and studying abroad or in another country. The program covers up to $5,000 per year.
The Gilman Scholarship is open to undergraduate students who are pursuing an undergraduate degree at a federally-funded institution of higher education (such as community colleges) in the United States and have received their first bachelor’s or associate degree prior to enrolling at their home institution as well as any other country where they intend on studying abroad during their time at school; furthermore, they must also have been admitted into that particular university’s graduate program before applying for the award—this means that if you’re already attending Georgetown University but haven’t yet graduated from there yet then don’t apply!
The application deadline varies depending on which type(s) of scholarship(s) you’re applying for–for example: If you want funding toward your study abroad experience then it needs to arrive by April 15th each year; otherwise it’d be too late since many international opportunities close off earlier than this date so keep track of what happens before committing yourself fully!
