U.S. News & World Report warns international students applying for scholarships in the United States never to pay when searching or applying for scholarships. “If a scholarship search engine or application asks you for a credit card or other financial information before you can use it, stay away.” This can be a problem especially for students who come to study in the United States from another country.
The article reports that the most reliable source available is the financial aid offered by colleges or universities. EducationUSA can help you with information on the process of selecting a school and a course of study in the United States.
