As well as watching the 12 finalist videos, we encourage you to check out the Viewers’ Choice winning video: Leaving Routine Behind, created by Kaleema Lowery, who is actually participating for her second time in this contest! Winning the Viewers’ Choice Award means she not only will receive $1,000, but also gains automatic entry into the finalist round.

      Thank you for your comment.

      We have loan programs available to international students studying at an approved school in the United States. Most international student loans require students to have a co-signer, the co-signer must be a US citizen or permanent resident with good credit and income history and who has lived in the US for the past two years. However, no cosigner loans are available to international students who attend select schools. You will also have to provide a valid student visa in order to finalize the loan. You can apply for up to the total cost of education (some lenders will have a maximum amount you can borrow so you will need to confirm that with them), as determined by your school, minus any other aid received. After you apply and receive credit approval for you and your co-signer, your school must certify the amount of the loan. The proceeds are then disbursed directly to the school.

      You should apply for a loan after you have been accepted and enrolled into an eligible school.

      You can see eligible schools here:

      You can start the application process and find all available lenders here:

      Please let us know if you have any further questions.
