Studying abroad is now easier than ever. There are more and more scholarships and opportunities, and on the other hand, there is also more information available for students interested in broadening their horizons.
The United States is a very attractive country to study abroad because it has one of the best higher education systems in the world. Some of the most prestigious universities, such as Harvard, Columbia, Yale, or Stanford, offer scholarships for international students, directly or through various foundations.
But they are not the only ones. In addition, Spanish institutions such as the “La Caixa” Foundation also offer good scholarships to study abroad, including the country of stars and stripes.
But as always happens, the best scholarships are also the most competitive. And if you don’t master the language, we suggest you start learning English now, so as not to close the door to any of these opportunities.
