YoungBuzz Studyabroad Counselor - A scholarship is an award of access to a student to further education. Study Abroad Scholarships are awarded on various criteria usually reflecting the values and purposes of the donor or founder of the award.

Scholarships are very popular among the students who are looking to study abroad. These students are basically known as International students. International student scholarships are very competitive to secure. The competition is very much and the students who are not able to get the scholarship rely exclusively on themselves and their relatives for funding and education loan.

There are reasonable numbers of scholarships for Post Graduate and PhD courses in United States of America for International Student. But for Undergraduate courses there are only limited scholarships available.

The popular Undergraduate scholarships for Indian Students are:

1.LearnHub Dream Study Abroad Scholarship:

The LearnHub Scholarship is actually a bursary. You can use it to buy books, pay for some fees or maybe get some cool equipment like a groovy microscope or that electric guitar. It's a one time grant of USD 2000 for a student who applies to a university via LearnHub and makes it across! You get the amount once you join the college and complete 1 semester over there. In case you win the scholarship but don't join the college/university, don't worry - you will still win goodies.

2.Fulbright Fellowships for Indian Citizens:
Fulbright Fellowship is awarded to Indian Nationals who can contribute to a full and fair picture of the culture and civilization of India, and thereby help to promote understanding and friendship between the peoples of the United States of America and India.

What is the eligibility for this scholarship?

A student needs to have high level of academic/professional achievement & demonstrate proficiency in the English language to undertake the proposed project/program and adjust to life in the U.S.

3. Ambassadorial Scholarships by The Rotary Foundation:

This is one of the world's largest privately funded international scholarships program. Formed in 1947, The Rotary foundation has encouraged 38,000 men and women from almost 100 countries of the world. The purpose of the Ambassadorial Scholarships program is to further international understanding and friendly relations among people of different countries and geographical areas. The program sponsors several types of scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students as well as for qualified professionals pursuing vocational studies
