In America, where students have long been accustomed to paying for university, the scholarship industry is worth hundreds of millions of dollars and it is an integral part of the college application process for students to search for and submit scholarship applications.
The Scholarship Hub is being approached on a more regular basis by organisations from the USA that have scholarships which are open to students worldwide, regardless of the subject they are studying or the institution they attend. Some of them may seem odd to us, as we are not used to seeing this type of scholarship here in the UK, but most of them are genuine opportunities to earn some extra money for your studies. The only caveat we would impress on you is that there are some scams out there and any scholarship application form that asks you to pay money to apply, should be left well alone.
We list the opportunities that we believe to be genuine on our database under “no specific university”. Here is a selection which are currently open for applications.
