Higher education in the United States can be quite expensive. For international students the price tag can be even higher. Fortunately, there are many colleges and universities that offer scholarships for international students. Keep in mind that most schools do not offer full scholarships, but there are many options for partial scholarships. In addition, it’s important to know that scholarships are very competitive and not guaranteed. It is best to apply for a scholarship as early as possible.
Below are five highlighted schools that offer scholarships to international students.
University of Oregon

College of Charleston
“One of the best educational values in the nation.” – Forbes Magazine
The College of Charleston is a state-affiliated institution, which means tuition rates differ for resident vs. non-resident students. While our academic fees are less than those of many other institutions in the state and across the nation, we recognize that the cost of attending college in the US is a significant expense in the family budget.
College of Charleston cannot offer international students need-based financial aid. However, we do review every international application for tuition award scholarship. These scholarships are awarded to international students who have exceptional academic records. For more information about scholarships at College of Charleston, click here.
