Sources of funding for students from North America

As a general rule it is advisable that, in the first instance, you should contact your own Ministry of Education or Education Department, which will have details of most schemes and which will be able to advise you of your own government's conditions for studying abroad.

You should check carefully the eligibility criteria for any of the funding organisations before you apply to them.
