Today, we’re excited to delve into some incredible opportunities available in the United States for international applicants in need of financial assistance.
We recently stumbled upon a remarkable organization that is actively sponsoring international applicants seeking to relocate to the USA.
This golden opportunity became available in August 2023, just last month, and will remain open until November 15, 2023. We’re sharing this information with you to ensure that you have ample time to apply before the deadline.
Now, let’s get down to business.
Today, we’re going to discuss some incredible opportunities available to international applicants worldwide, as long as you’re not a citizen of the United States. There’s a non-governmental organization with a global reach that has been dedicated to empowerment and social development for several years. Their focus includes economic security, educational development, and advocacy, with a substantial track record of supporting projects around the world.
One of their primary areas of intervention is providing funding for educational purposes. This is especially crucial for international students considering studying in the United States. While U.S. universities offer internal funding opportunities, there are numerous external options for students to explore for additional financial support. The organization we’re highlighting is one of these external funding sources, and they’ve been providing financial assistance to international students for several years.
The organization in question is the AAUW (American Association of University Women). Their mission revolves around empowering and taking global action, particularly in support of women. On their homepage, you can find more information about their focus areas, which encompass economic security, education, and advocacy. A significant part of their work involves providing funding for fellowships and educational grants.
They offer a range of funding opportunities, and in this video, we’ll explore some of their currently open opportunities. However, we’ll shine a spotlight on one of the most significant funding opportunities, which is currently accepting applications. This opportunity opened on August 1 and will close on November 15, 2023. It’s worth noting that you don’t need to have been accepted to a U.S. university before applying; you only need to have applied to an eligible U.S. institution. Later on, you’ll need to provide proof of acceptance to access the funding.
This International Fellowship is open to women who are not U.S. citizens. It’s designed to support women pursuing full-time graduate or postdoctoral studies in the United States. The fellowship has been in existence since 1917 and aims to develop recipients both professionally and educationally. The key condition is that you must be committed to returning to your home country to contribute to your local community.
To be eligible for the International Fellowship, you must hold an academic degree equivalent to a U.S. bachelor’s degree, intend to devote yourself full-time to your academic plan, and be proficient in English. The award amounts vary depending on your level of study: $20,000 for master’s degree candidates, $25,000 for doctoral degree candidates, and up to $50,000 for postdoctoral positions.
The application period for this fellowship opened on August 1, 2023. Notifications of decisions will be emailed to applicants by April 15, 2024. If you’re selected, the funding will be available for the 2024-2025 academic year.
To apply, you need to have citizenship in a country other than the United States and demonstrate a commitment to the advancement of women and girls in your home country. You must also show evidence of prior community or civic service in your home country and a genuine need for specialized knowledge or skills related to your proposed graduate research. Additionally, you must provide a compelling motivation for pursuing graduate study or research in the United States.
If you meet these criteria and want to apply, here’s how to do it. Visit the AAUW website, where you’ll find an “Apply Now” button on the International Fellowship information page. If it’s your first time, you’ll need to create an account by providing your email, setting a password, and entering your date of birth.
This is an outstanding opportunity for women seeking to pursue graduate programs in the United States, with funding ranging from $20,000 to $50,000. To ensure you’re well-prepared, carefully read all the information on their website before applying. If you’ve already applied to U.S. universities, be sure to include the names of these institutions when applying for the International Fellowship.
