What scholarships are available to study in the US? Where can I find a full scholarship? A partial scholarship?
There are many scholarships available to study in the U.S. Most scholarships available to international students come directly from specific universities and their programs. Sometimes MESCyT offers scholarships to Dominican students to study in the U.S. or other parts of the world.
Full scholarships are not easy to find especially for students who are studying for a Bachelor´s degree or student. Partial scholarships can be found much more easily. Feel to look at our SCHOLARSHIPS page! We update it every week.
How do I get the visa to study in the U.S.?
The visa process begins during the application process. In all of your applications, be sure to indicate that you are an international student so that the university is aware that upon admission, there is some visa paperwork to be completed. Once you have been admitted to the university, the university is your sponsor. They will need to fill out a DS-2019 form. When they fill out the form, the form will be given to you, the student. From there, you can apply for the visa.
