Kent State University offers scholarships

Many students with a good academic score can't fulfil their aspiration of studying in a good international university due to want of funds. Well, Kent State University, Ohio, is trying to reduce that stress for well deserving students by offering a number of scholarships for the forthcoming Fall session. As Kent State University (KSU) values diversity amongst its student population they have created a new “Global Scholarship” to attract a greater number of high quality international students to its campuses. The “Global Scholarship” is immediately available to all incoming international undergraduate degree-seeking students who apply to Kent State beginning with fall 2018 semester. The Global Scholarship provides eligible students with $4,000 per year ($2,000 per semester) reducing the cost of their undergraduate degree by up to $16,000,” says Salma Benhaida, Director International Recruitment Admissions & Sponsored Student Services. Salma was on a five-city tour of India interacting with students from different schools. “For the Global Scholarship to renew every year students simply need to maintain continuous full-time enrolment and good academic standing. Along with other scholarships that the university is offering an international student can get up to $32,000 towards a 4-year undergraduate degree,” Salma added.
