Financial aid.

Almost every college, university in the US offers financial aid to foreign students. Financial іsupport is a full or partial exemption from payment of tuition fees. Financial support does not cover student accommodation or food - only to study!

Grant is a loan, wich you don`t need to come back, from the government, private foundations and organizations. Each grant program has its own requirements, defines the requirements for the participants and the direction in which it is possible to get grants. The most popular grant programs:

  • Fulbright Foundation – provides scholarships for graduate and post-graduate students in the humanities, engineering, precision, and social disciplines. Legal, medical and economic fields, including areas such as business, marketing, management, accounting, and others. Do not take part in the preparation of Fulbright grant.

The program requires that all students from Ukraine will not only study at US universities, but also to participate in cultural activities and volunteer programs in America!

Scholarships from the US government and other countries, organizations, universities, research scholarships, athletic scholarships, and others. Scholarships are awarded only to the best students, not all universities offer scholarships to foreign students, but also those who provide, quite a lot. Scholarships can only get students meet these requirements. The main requirement to all participants - a knowledge of the English language at a high level (100 and above - TOEFL; 6,5-7 and higher IELTS) and proof of your successes and achievements.

Many Ukrainian students wishing to obtain a Master's degree (Master), or to defend his dissertation and obtain the degree of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) study free of charge and receive a fairly high scholarship! As a Master's degree in the United States is comparable to our PhD - it is considered a scientific degree.

But the list of opportunities to get discounts, scholarships, aid and grants is quite large, and choose the option individually for each student - is real !!!

  • First of all colleges look to the academic progress of the future student! If you are always get low mark and you have an average English, the chances of getting a scholarship or finansial help you have less.
  • Attach to the documents accompanying the letter in which you explain why you deserve exemption from payment of school.
  • Besides cover letters all your achievements will be considered ...
  • Show that you can at least partially pay for study.
