9. Columbia University

Colombia is an Ivy League university located in New York, and it ranks amongst the top 20 universities in the world.
Colombia has a need-aware admissions process. This 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. This means you stand a better chance of getting admission if you’re not applying to aid.
However, if you’re qualified and you get through that difficult admission process. Then they are extremely generous with their aid and they guarantee that they will meet 100% of the demonstrated need.

Last year, Columbia University gave $13 million in financial aid to international undergraduate students.

10. Williams College

W.C is ranked among the top hundred colleges and is one of the premier liberal arts colleges in the US. It’s located on the East Coast between N.Y and. Boston and give scholarships to about 50 to hundred international undergraduate students last year and before that.

Williams College states that it has a need-blind admission. Let’s see how 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. I want you to pay attention to the differences between the two.

  • I need-blind admissions. The 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 the international undergraduate students. Averaging about sixty thousand dollars last year.
