NOTE: Sorry, but a lot of these scholarships are aimed at U.S citizens. However, not all are. For example, some just require you to be a resident, or nothing at all. You need to click on the sites and read all eligibility. Mostly, just be proficient in English, and if you’re reading this I’m sure you are ^___^ – but if you need any help, let me know and comment below, or “ask me anything” on my tumblr which is linked at the bottom of my “About The Blogger” page!
