Scholarships for internatinal students

Hello, I'm applying to UCLA and I wanted to know if there are any grants or scholarships from big companies for internatinal students, since UC's doesn't give financial aid to internatinal students. Thank you

Hi! There are alot of scholarships that you can apply to and I suggest to do your research. Some of the search engines that I found really useful include:

1) Scholarship Owl - this website searches and filters scholarships depending on your GPA, the college you are applying to and also the major you want to get in.

2) JLV College Consulting - this is a blog actually but it provides a TON of scholarship information that are grouped into categories for you to apply for.

3) Internationalstudent.com - this website is GOLD! It gives you all the info you need about studying abroad and scholarship opportunities.

4) Goabroad scholarships - a list of scholarships that you can apply to based on where the uni is located

Good luck!

There are many private scholarships for international students, especially if you are going into a STEM field.

Regeneron STS= scholarship for writing a research paper= 250,000$ for 1st prize!, 150,000$ for 2nd and so on..with top 40 people getting 25,000$ each

NSHSS= an honors society that has many small scholarships(1000- 10,000$ range) but there is very little competition, so high chance of getting it.

RaiseMe.org= organization that gives GUARANTEED scholarships just based on your grades and resume! no essay required!

Bold.org= another organization that gives scholarships based on your resume, but there is lots of competition

I have gotten scholarships through all of the above organizations and so I know for sure that they give scholarships to international students like me.
