US Colleges that give the most financial aid to international students

Posted by:

For most international students, it is a goal to study at a college in US. Living this goal and making their dream come true often means paying huge amounts for tuition and fees.

International students are not eligible for scholarships sponsored by the state government in the US or federal aid programmes. Some schools in the US offer need-based aid to students who are not citizens of US, but this is typically on a very limited basis.

Some of the top-schools are generous in giving financial aids, but getting into one of these institutions is no easy feat. Also, admissions to one of these schools does not guarantee a scholarship, either.
