In response to many inquiries from all over the USA, Albania, and elsewhere, Frosina is pleased to make the following information available about funding sources for higher educational purposes in the USA for foreign nationals:

Funding for US Study: A Guide for International Students and Professionals is a comprehensive reference source on financial assistance available for foreign nationals to pursue educational objectives in the US. The book was compiled by the Institute of International Education, the largest US higher educational exchange agency. The Institute is a nonprofit organization with over 600 US college and university member organizations.

The book provides information on agencies that offer awards for foreign nationals to study, teach, carry out research or pursue other educational objectives in the US. Funding for US Study offers the most relevant data on over 600 fellowships, grants, travel grants, scholarships and paid internships geared to all levels of post-secondary education and research: undergraduate, graduate/postgraduate, postdoctoral and professional.

Funding for US Study is intended to be an informational resource on scholarships, grants and fellowships available from public and private sources in the US and abroad: governments, foundations, corporations, associations, research centers, libraries and other agencies.

Foreign nationals may apply directly to these grant and fellowship programs if they meet eligibility requirements. Typically, these grant programs do not require special nomination by home governments, institutions or international organizations. Programs of this type exist, but they are not the focus of this book, which is intended to identify grants and fellowships that are generally accessible to foreign nationals.

Copies of this important reference book, Funding for US StudyA Guide for International Students and Professionals, are available in larger public and academic libraries and, generally, in USIA/US Embassy offices overseas.
