I understand that finances play a huge role in the studying abroad process. The tuition fee for studying in universities abroad is quite a lot as compared to the universities in India. Things like accommodation, healthcare, groceries etc add upto the already enormous expense. So scholarships come as a saviour to any study abroad aspirant since they help waive off some of the burden of expenses. 

While you can not get a fully-funded scholarship, you can look for scholarships that cover most part of your expenses. I have created a list of scholarships that you can look into: 

1. Fulbright Scholarships
These scholarships are only offered for masters and PhD studies. Fulbright Foreign Student Program covers full tuition fee, a living stipend, full accommodation fee, airfare and health insurance.

2.  Stanford University Scholarships
This scholarship is offered for Masters and Ph.D studies. This scholarship is offering full tuition fees, traveling allowance, Living allowance and academic expenses.

3. Yale University Scholarships
This scholarship is offered for undergraduate, masters and PhD. Yale Scholarship can vary from a few hundred dollars to over $70,000 per year; the average Yale need-based scholarship is over $50,000.

4. AAUW International Fellowship Program
This scholarship is offered by The American Association of University Women, USA. International students from all world countries are eligible to apply. This scholarship is only available for graduate and post-graduate studies in any subject offered by the university. AAUW Fellowship Program covers $18,000 to $30,000 per year, contingent upon meeting academic standards for renewal. 

5. ACI Foundation Scholarship
This scholarship is offered for undergraduate, masters, PhD and Postdoctoral studies. This scholarship provides $10,000 – $15,000 US educational stipend for tuition, residence, books, and materials.

All of these scholarships have specific profile requirements and so you need to be double sure if your profile matches their requirements. I know it can be a bit difficult to check the requirement for each scholarship separately.
