      Scholarships and Aid for International Students Applying for Undergraduate Programs

      As most of us know, financial aid and scholarships are limited for International students applying to the U.S. universities. There are still a number of universities that try to provide some aid or assistance package to strong profile International students, with majority of them being private universities and colleges.

      Here is a list of universities that are more generous when it comes to awarding financial aid to International students. Most of these universities, if not all, are the top private colleges, including colleges focusing on Liberal Arts. Many of them have huge endowments so less pressure on budgets and do not have the taxpayer funds supporting the system.

      Students who has strong academic record with a good extra-curricular profile, leadership etc. are in excellent positio, not only from the chances of getting admitted to these highly competitive institutions but also seeing some of their expenses covered by college aid and grants.
