As required by INS (Immigration and Naturalization Services) regulations, international students must demonstrate that they have access to adequate money to pay for their educational expenses. A tuition deposit is required before the issuance of the I-20 form, which is required to secure a visa to enter the United States.
American students who apply from abroad are not eligible for these special international scholarships but instead should apply for special programs available only to U.S. citizens.
