That is one of the main questions we receive from many students who come to us seeking for guidance and help. Remember that, since its conception, the U.S. has always been a country that embraced the arrival of immigrants. The U.S. Public Administration knows that foreign students are an incredible resource to maintain the success of the country. Therefore, the Administration gives financial benefits to universities to help them provide scholarships to foreign students, who would like to continue their studies in the U.S. In addition to the revenue factor, universities in the U.S. love diversity. They know that foreign students can bring many benefits to their communities. Therefore, some of them are willing to privately invest in scholarships for foreign students beyond the funds provided by the Administration. For all of the prior is why, in many cases, foreign students could receive even higher financial aid than U.S. local students. Remember that scholarships are offered by universities, and not by Epro 360. Our job is to make sure you obtain the best possible scholarship deal.
We would like to share with you one example of a scholarship that we have provided to some international students in the past.
Example - Academic Scholarship:
(**) The main requirements are: TOEFL score of at least 50 points, high school diploma, and high school GPA of at least 3.0.
(***) International students are authorized, by law, to work on campus up to 20 hours a week during the regular semester and 40 hours during breaks. However, many universities do not allow international students completing an ESL program to work because they want students to fully focus on their studies and achieve their goal to become proficient with the English language. There are other universities that allow international students to work while completing the ESL program. Please note that neither the university nor Epro 360 can guarantee a job position to the student prior to their arrival. Upon their arrival, the student will need to find their preferred job position on campus and apply. To be conservative, in our example, we assume the student works 10 hours during 16 weeks per semester and is paid the minimum wage is some states, which is $7.25 per hour.
