Top 10 Universities In USA Where You Can Study For Free | Study in USA for Free | Scholarships

hello hello and welcome back in today's

video we are going to talk about the top

10 universities in the US where you can

do your undergraduate education as an

international student for free we did

some videos on scholarships in the

recent past including the daad

scholarship the chevening scholarship

Erasmus Mundus scholarship inlaks

scholarships and the top 10 scholarships

for women to study abroad and I realized

that most of those scholarships were for

masters and PhD programs so I thought

why not do a program for you talking

about the top 10 scholarships that you

high-school students want for your

undergraduate studies in the US but

every time we go online and like us and

now I want to talk about the three

different kinds of funding that

typically international students get in

the US for their undergraduate studies

the first is called financial aid which

is need-based and typically they are

going to ask you for all your financial

documents including financial documents

of your family

the second is merit scholarships which

is self-explanatory and the third is

called athletic scholarships which is

typically for top athletes now in this

video we are going to talk about the

first in the second that is financial

aid and merit scholarships now before I

give you that exciting list of ten

universities that you are dying to know

about I want to tell you the basis on

which I've chosen these particular ten

universities for you now the first one

is the amount of scholarship that they

grant you know there are

hundreds of universities in the US that

will give you anything between $5,000

and $10,000 per annum and we did a video

sometime back called the cost of

studying in the US and we discovered

that five thousand or ten thousand

dollars wasn't of too much help when it

came to financing your undergraduate

education in the US so the first

criteria that I've used when I've

selected these ten universities is the

quantum of scholarship so these ten

universities will either give you a full

scholarship on your full tuition or it

might extend your living cost your

personal costs your book costs and all

of those and sometimes you may even get

a stipend up to $2,500 in addition to

all of these the second criteria on the

basis of which I've chosen these ten

universities is the number of awards

that they gave every year now I said

there's no point bringing to you

universities that give one or two

scholarships and there are several of

those that you want to keep in mind for

today's video we're going to look at

universities that give a large number of

scholarships or have an instituted

scholarship program and some of these

universities even give financial aid up

to 500 or 600 students per annum the

third criteria on the basis of which

I've chosen these universities is that

all of this financial aid and

scholarship is loan free when you

graduate you have absolutely no debt

component that is there for you to have

repaid and the last criteria that I've

used to choose these ten universities

for you is ranking because I know you

love the best schools but I want to add

a word of caution here that because

these schools are really good and

because they give financing they are

really very selective and admissions to

these universities can be extremely

difficult sometimes they may even accept

less than 10 percent of the applications

that they receive

see I know you're super talented and

you're gonna qualify for those

admissions and for the financial aid so

let's begin the number-10 college on the

list is Williams College Williams

College is ranked among the top hundred

colleges and is one of the premier

liberal arts colleges in the u.s. it's

located on the east coast between New

York and Boston and gave scholarships to

about 50 to 100 international undergraduate

students last year and before that now

Williams College states that it has a

need-blind admissions policy

now you're going to encounter the terms

need blind and need aware a few times

when you start looking for scholarships

so let me clarify these two terms

because they are very different and I

want you to pay attention to the

differences between the two a need-blind

admission policy is a great admission

policy because they give you admission

when you qualify irrespective of whether

you've applied for financial aid or not

a need aware admission policy on the

other hand is one where take for example

if two students apply to that need aware

University and they have similar

profiles then they would prefer the

student that didn't apply for financial

aid so once you know the difference

between these two Williams is a

need-blind college which is great and

they give financial aid to their

international undergraduate students

averaging about $60,000 last year now

all the details are on the website the

links are given in the description box

below this video so quickly go there and

check that out

and now let's look at the number nine

University which is Columbia University

Columbia is an Ivy League university

located in New York and it ranks amongst

the top 20 universities in the world and

Columbia has a need aware admissions

process which means that while it's very

generous with financial aid towards the

undergraduate student body it's going to

bias you if you apply for aid which

means you stand a better chance of

getting admission if you're not applying

to aid however if you're super qualified

and you get through that difficult

admission process then they are

extremely generous with their aid and

they guarantee that they will meet

hundred percent of the demonstrated need

last year Columbia University gave 13

million dollars in financial aid to

international undergraduate students so

quickly go to the description box pick

up the link click on it and check out

everything about Columbia University's

financial aid program number eight on

our list is university of chicago

UChicago is one of the top ten

universities in the US and is

particularly strong in the economics

area UChicago frequently features in

the list of colleges that gives the

maximum amount of international aid to

undergraduate students but like Columbia

University UChicago is also need

aware which means you could get

disadvantaged if you apply for that aid

however if you're super super qualified

and you make it through that admission

process you're going to get a generous

financial aid which could include your

entire tuition cost your cost of living

books and personal expenses in addition

to the financial aid UChicago also

offers undergraduate a merit scholarship

this could be a partial tuition

scholarship and is irrespective of your

need or financial need or your

application for aid all undergraduate

students are eligible for this merit

scholarship and it's an automatic

scholarship you don't need to apply for

it especially so all the links once

again are in the description box under

the video and you want to go and check

them out quickly

number seven on our list is Amherst


Amherst is one of the top 25 colleges in

the US and is situated in the state of

Massachusetts Amherst as a need-blind

admission process which means they will

not look at your financial need and they

will grant you admission if they like

you now last year Amherst gave about

50 to 100 international scholarships and

almost 50% of their entire incoming

undergraduate batch is on some

scholarship or the other so that's why

Amherst features at number 7 on our list at

number 6 comes up the Washington

University at st. Louis WashU is one of

the top hundred universities in the

world and is a leading University

especially in the field of medicine and

life sciences Wash U has two instituted

scholarship programs that together give

up to 50 scholarships to deserving

international undergraduate students the

two scholarships are first the Anika

Rodriguez scholarship and second the

Danford Scholars Program

now we've done a video earlier on the

Anika Rodriguez scholarship in detail

and you want to go back and check that

out when you're applying for the

scholarship you need to put in the

application form under the common app

for Washington University at st. Louis

please remember that there are a few

other universities called Washington

University as well but this one is

Washington University at st. Louis which

is located in the state of Missouri so

once you fill out the application for

this college additionally you would need

to fill up a separate application for

one of the two scholarships that you are

applying to

you'll also need to write a separate

essay and you may also have to give

another letter of recommendation all the

details are already on the website and

like I said we've done a video before so

you want to go back and see that entire

experience of applying and staying at

Washington University in that video but

this scholarship could range from a

partial tuition

all the way to a full tuition plus a

stipend of $2,500 so you want to quickly

look at the links in the description box

under the video at number 5 is Yale

University one of the top 15

universities in the world this

ivy-league College is located at Blue

Haven in Connecticut not very far from

New York Yale also has a need-blind

admission policy which is great they

don't consider your financial need they

give you admission on your merit alone

they give about one hundred to hundred

and fifty scholarships every year

averaging about fifty thousand dollars

and they guarantee to meet your entire

need now families which have income

levels of less than $65,000 and this

applies across nationalities so

sixty-five thousand dollars is

approximately about forty five lakh of

rupees if your family income your entire

family income of all the members of the

family is less than about 45 lakhs per

annum then you have a good chance of

completing your undergraduate education

tuition free and loan free at number

four on the list is MIT MIT is one of

the top universities in the world and is

located in Boston MIT also has a

need-blind admissions policy now before

we continue on this you may be wondering

why do all these famous universities

have this need-blind admission policy

now the little secret here is they've

got alumni that have done really well

going forward and they're generous

enough to come back with donations to

these universities so typically the more

top-ranked the university is the greater

the chances that they would be able to

offer you financial aid so continuing on

the MIT story mit has a need lined

admission policy which means they like

you they take you and they

guarantee a full financial aid if you

need it so if your family income is less

than $80,000 which is about 56 lakh of

rupees in Indian currency you could be

completely tuition free and MIT on its

website states that about 35% of their

student body is not paying anything to

MIT so you want to make sure you work

that little hard to get into this

university because you could have a

chance of completing your four years

education without paying them a single

cent dollar or rupee MIT gives around

three hundred to four hundred

scholarships irrespective of nationality

averaging about $42,000 every year and

like I said the aid is automatic, it is the

admission which is super competitive at

number three we have Princeton

University one of the top ten

universities in the world located in New

Jersey Princeton is an Ivy League school

they've given about four hundred to five

hundred scholarships every single year

averaging about $50,000 irrespective of

nationality with Princeton University if

your family income is about sixty five

thousand dollars which is about forty

five lakh of rupees the entire family

income then you would pay nothing they

would take care of your tuition your

room and boarding your books and your

personal expenses and if your family

income goes up to one hundred and eighty

thousand dollars which is upwards of a

crore even then you could go to tuition

free so between sixty five thousand

dollars and one hundred and eighty

thousand dollars family income you would

get some part of the tuition and

living expenses paid for in fact sixty

percent of the undergraduate batch at

Princeton class of 2021 is

getting some financial aid from the

university at number two coming up is

New York University one of the best-kept

secret is New York University's Abu

Dhabi campus NYU AD at NYU ad the

entire batch of about 300 to 400

students get a full financial aid

need-blind package so this batch of 300

to 400 students at this campus which are

72,000 dollars which includes your

tuition fee cost of living boarding

books personal expenses foreign travel

a year tickets from Abu Dhabi to your

country of residence and given NYU's

global network an average NYU Abu Dhabi

student completes the four year

undergraduate program having visited an

average of 10 countries and not having

taken a single penny from home but it's

one of the most selective institutions

in the world accepting less than 3 to 4

percent of the applicants NYU also

offers generous financial aid and merit

scholarships at its Shanghai campus and
