When you are accepted by an institution to study in the United States, you will need to show that you

have enough funds to support you through at least one year of study.

This funding might come from:

* Personal or family funds

* Private scholarships

* Governmental funding

* College scholarships or assistantships.

Generally, there is more financial aid available to students who are applying for graduate study rather

than undergraduate study in the United States. More than 1500 fully funded masters scholarships 2022-

monthly stipend of $1000 along with tuition fees, accommodation charges, health insurance and travel
