Television Park–    The number of international students attending a US college or university continues to grow every year, but the financial aid options for these undergraduates varies among schools.

A total of 974,926 international undergraduates enrolled during the 2014-2015 school year – up 10% from the prior year. While some international students receive financial aid packages, most colleges and universities restrict aid awards to US citizens or legal residents.

So what is the appeal of studying abroad? Beatriz Caldas is a junior at Guilford College in Greensboro, NC… majoring in English with a minor in communications and French. She’s visiting Augusta on her Fall Break from school, and just happens to be my house guest this week!
