Tough Decision but Scholarship Might Help
Among the +4,000 higher education institutions in the U.S., over 1,550 report that they hosted at least one non-resident alien (international) degree-seeking undergraduate student in 2014/15. And over half, or 811 institutions, reported awarding institutional financial aid—need based and/or non-need based—to enrolled international undergraduate students in 2014/15, totaling nearly $1.2 billion.
When international students receive their admissions decisions, take a look at where you got accepted. Contact admissions and ask if you qualify for scholarship. You, the student, will benefit financially but most importantly, it tells you which campus will value you more as their student.
