Are you a student from outside of the United States who wants to study in the US? If so, you are in good company! Each year, well over one million international students study in the United States. One of the most common questions that we get from these students at Scholarships360 is “where can I find scholarships?”. This can sometimes be tricky because many American scholarships are only for students in the US. We are excited to have this post dedicated to sharing the best scholarships for international students!
