I am a student from Germany, who is currently enrolled at a high school in Texas as a junior as a foreign exchange students. I am really thinking about graduating from school in Germany and then coming back for college to the US. Currently I am looking into scholarships of schools in Texas and I wanted to ask what schools give good and high scholarships to international students from Europe?

It's first important to figure out which schools in Texas would be a good fit for you academically and socially. After that, you can search up the name of the school + scholarships for international students. It looks like UT Austin has a full tuition scholarship for international students ("International Education Fees Scholarship") and Texas State has some scholarships that would allow international students to pay the in-state tuition rate (it's not a full tuition scholarship, but it is a big discount).

Here are a couple links to those scholarships:



You might also consider private schools that have generous financial aid programs, like Rice University. Rice promises to meet 100% of demonstrated financial need to all students, including those from abroad: https://financialaid.rice.edu/international. Of course, Rice is very competitive though, and the amount of aid you get depends on your family's financial situation.

In any case, I hope this helps!

If you can't find a specific school that offers scholarships for international students, I would suggest applying for scholarships that don't apply to a school. These scholarships can be given to you to pay for tuition. There are so many scholarships out there. I would suggest using cappex, Fastweb, or scholarships.com. These are all websites that can help you find scholarships you are eligible for. There a lot of scholarships out there given for writing, sports, arts, etc. I would suggest applying for as many as possible. The more you apply to, the higher chance you have of winning them. Apply for whatever. It doesn't matter if it's $300 vs. $3,000. $300 may not seem like a lot, but it actually is. It's $300 less that you have to worry about. I would treat the application process like a part time job. The more time and effort you put into applying, you'll get more out of it.
