United States of America has always been one of the most chosen countries by students who are looking forward to gain higher education internationally. However, the cost involved in the same might not be as affordable as every student. So, these universities provide students with scholarship options who can avail their studies in USA.

So these scholarships fall under two categories

  • The student has to incur the cost for the remaining expenses
