Resources for financial support for Indonesian students?

christynatalisachristynatalisa 10 replies1 threads New Member
I am a current high school student from Indonesia and I was accepted to NYU Shanghai, however, even with the $32,7k scholarship I received, my parents still couldn't afford it and we're still $30k short. I've contacted the office to ask about on-campus job opportunities but they said those payments usually can only cover most of the meal costs. I'm trying to do whatever I can do within my capabilities to gain financial support in order to achieve this life-long dream of mine to attend NYU. If you have any legit resources/websites where I could look for money to fund my education, please inform me through this discussion. Thank you for taking your time to read my message and I hope it finds you well.

    Some students are sponsored by their country‘s government to go to school. You may have the option of having your country sponsor you, but that information would have to come directly from your government.

    A number of scholarships for use in the US, are sponsored by US companies, so unless you’re a US citizen, I don’t see you qualifying for a lot of scholarships. Most scholarships are small and competitive, ~ $1000-$2000, and are only given for one year.
    ( Also, NYU is known for being very stingy with their money; they don’t give out a whole lot of funding to accepted students.)
    You may want to consider other universities that are affordable.
