Diversify your international student population by capitalizing on scholarship opportunities for both international and study abroad students. This ongoing resource will from AACRAO International will highlight opportunities by focusing on particular regions, now featuring Asia. Click here for previously published resources from the Gulf.
The majority of countries in Asia do not provide scholarships to students seeking an education outside of those countries. Many more provide scholarships to foreign students seeking an education within those countries, and just as many provide scholarships for their own students wanting to study at a postsecondary institution within their country. As a result, most of the available scholarships for studying abroad are provided by agencies and foundations other than the government.
Nevertheless, students in Asia looking for scholarships to study abroad can find a list here. And for a list of scholarships available to international students in general, students can look here.
Below is information on scholarships in Yemen.
Yemen has had a civil war in its country since 2015, causing a worsening humanitarian situation. Still, the Yemeni Ministry of Higher Education grants scholarships to students already studying in the U.S. Students can submit the required documents to the Yemeni embassy, who then submits them to the Ministry of Higher Education and requests a scholarship on behalf of the student. For further information, see here.
Questions can be directed to the embassy’s Cultural Office in Washington, D.C.
