Scholarships for International Students
Recently, we've found some scholarship opportunities for
which international students are eligible. As far as we have
been able to determine,
none of these scholarships are restricted to
U.S. citizens - as you know, financial aid can be hard to
come by, so don't let these opportunities go to waste!

- Datatel Scholars Foundation
Datatel is offering multiple scholarships through four programs. Award amounts
vary from $700 to $5000. You apply through your school, which must be a
participating institution (it probably is). The schools must submit the

get your application in to your school's financial aid office before then.
Full information, lists of participating schools, application forms and
more are available at the Datatel Scholars Foundation's website.
