important to understand that most universities offer financial
assistance to international students based primarily on merit
and rarely on need. The amount, and type of assistance offered
varies, based on the university, department and level of study.
Assistance of funds is more likely in Graduate studies and less
in Undergraduate courses. Also funds are more likely to be
available in fields like Engineering, Physical Sciences and
Biological sciences, rather than in courses like Humanities,
Social Sciences and Management.
