                   Full Ride Scholarships for International Students

Studying in the USA is very expensive, which may serve as a demotivating factor for low income talented international students. Fully funded Scholarships are hard to find in the USA and most of them have US citizens as eligible candidates. However, there are some fully funded scholarships that are also for international students. The Mattrab team did extensive research and came up with a list of such scholarships.

We define fully funded scholarships as “Scholarships that at least cover full tuition and living expenses. This article will not be focused on need-based financial aid ,which most ivies and high endowment colleges grant on admission. Also, this article may not include all the scholarships ,but it was the paramount focus of our team to come up with as much as we can.

The requirements differ by scholarships. However, most scholarships require you to get a high score on English Proficiency exams like TOEFL and IELTS as well as appropriate tests such as SAT/ACT for prospective undergraduate students and GRE for prospective graduate students. In addition, they will need to get excellent grades and recommendations.
