As an international student, the search for outside scholarships can be complicated, since a lot of scholarships are specifically for citizens or have a residency requirement. What is the best way for an international student to find lesser-known scholarships?

Hi Adrian, I wonder you already know about this website. https://www.scholarme.co/
Scholar me enables you to apply thousands of scholarships with writing one application.
This website is free and your privacy will be protected. I hope you could find a great scholarship throughout this website. Good luck!

I did not. Thanks a lot. Adrian D.

Hi Adrian,

Some scholarships for college are merit-based. You earn them by meeting or exceeding certain standards set by the scholarship-giver. Merit scholarships might be awarded based on academic achievement or on a combination of academics and a special talent, trait, or interest. Other scholarships are based on financial need. You can learn about scholarships in several ways, including contacting the financial aid office at the school you plan to attend and checking information in a public library or online.

Adrian D. check out schools or even states that have a shortage, they will foot the bill for your education if you make a commitment to work for them once you degree in your field. Example the state of SC was short of teachers, one of my children was away in Jordan living with her mother, but because she wanted to be a teacher and S.C. needed teachers they paid for all of her schooling bought her here and she owed them 2 years commitment to teach in the state after graduation.

The beautiful thing it was win win. She got a degree a guaranteed job she's been there now almost 7 years and she loves. No debt a career but things worked out great for everyone involved.

Your doing the right thing though think outside of the box. There are companies that operate internationally that may have similar programs.

Adrian good luck on your journey.

Try applying for scholarships through the school you will be attending. For example my school was Brazosport College and they have a list of scholarships to apply for specifically for that school.
