Very valuable thread. Many are need of international scholarships at the moment. I could have availed of too during my schooling years.
Why should send your daughter to a girl boarding school?
Has anybody advice for international student loans? I'm from belgium and I need a loan to get into art center. I looked at some sites but most of them need a co signer that lived in the US for 2 years. I have a co signer but not somebody that lives in the US.
What should do?
I am in a similar situation like you. Yesterday I did a campus tour at Ringling and am pretty confident with the program - but not being a us-citizen and without my parents being able to finance this, there is only a small chance to apply. Especially with Student Loans not being available in Germany per se! I too would have to take a loan with an american Co-Signer and with the high tuition that is quite a favor asked...
My "solution" to this is as simple as it is disappointing: i keep looking for scholarships, try to accumulate a couple thereof and work for the next two years. Then maybe with an additional Credit of some form, I can study abroad. Sucks, but dedication always pays back
