Financial Support While Studying in a Big City

Posted on March 15th, 2011 by Jenny Frankel

After international students have made their decision as to what American states and schools will best meet their individual needs or interests, their next major concern is usually figuring out how they will finance these academic dreams and ambitions.

Besides the sometimes substantial financial aid packages offered to international students by U.S. colleges and universities dedicated to creating a culturally diverse learning experience for their student body, there are many other forms of financial aid and scholarships for international students that are worth checking out!

So before you start thinking colleges and universities in major cities such as Chicago, Miami, New York, and Los Angeles are not within your financial capabilities, make sure to try and do some online research on specific scholarships for international students studying in New York, Chicago, Miami, Los Angeles or other major U.S. cities.

While the majority of international students studying at post-secondary institutions in the United States are funded mostly by their own families, approximately 1/5th of them are able to secure the majority of their financial funding through their universities and by applying to different scholarships for international students.

Some online resources on financial aid opportunities and scholarships for international students studying in New York and other U.S. cities include: eduPass The Smart Guide to Studying in the USA, FundingUSStudy, International Scholarships, The Fulbright Program, International Student LoanRotary International and The Rotary Foundation, GrantsNet, The Foundation Center, The International Education Financial Aid, The Soros Foundation Network, Mobility International USA, and National Collegiate Athletic Association.
