So far in this blog series we have covered free resources to connect international students with schools that want to reach them and vice versa. InternationalStudent.com and ESLDirectory.com serve as free recruiting tools for schools and an excellent resource for students to find the right school. In this next posting, we will discuss free resources for educational institutions or companies that are offering scholarships to international students.
The first site is IEFA.org, which stands for International Education Financial Aid. This site is loaded with information about how international students can obtain financial aid, including blogs, message boards, resources and more. It also includes a Scholarship Search Tool, allowing students to search for, what else, scholarships. Currently, there are over 2,400 scholarships listed on IEFA.org, all targeting international study.
So, how do you list your scholarship on this great student resource site? I’ll get to that, but first I have to tell you about the other free site, InternationalScholarships.com. This site also is a free resource for international students to be able to search for scholarships and like all of our websites, it has a wealth of information, including how to obtain insurance, studying English as a Second Language, student travel related services and much more.
OK, now it’s time to tell you how to list your scholarship. Between IEFA.org and InternationalScholarships.com, the sites receive well over 1 million visits each year. The sites are also sticky; they generated together, over 9 million page views in 2010. The best part for you, the Award Administrator is that you only need to register your scholarship on InternationalScholarships.com. You will now be listed along with the other 2400 scholarships that have already been registered on both sites! Just think you now have the potential to be viewed by over a million international students looking for a scholarship!
