The United States has long been a sought-after destination for international students pursuing higher education.

With its reputation for providing quality education and a wide range of financial aid opportunities, the US remains an appealing choice for students around the world.

Recognizing the financial challenges faced by students from developing countries like Nigeria, various forms of financial assistance, including scholarships and loans, are available to help alleviate the financial burden associated with studying in the US.

To support and encourage prospective international students, Prime Business Africa (PBA) has compiled a comprehensive list of colleges and universities in the US that offer financial aid and scholarships.

These institutions are committed to making higher education accessible to a diverse group of individuals by providing financial assistance tailored to the needs of international students.
