The PEXIM Foundation is devoted to fostering legal, economic and social progress of Serbia and Macedonia, through investing in young talents. At our inception, these goal was pursued through providing scholarships for master studies at the University of Cambridge and through providing support to our returning scholars in finding suitable positions, from which they could make the most impact. Since its establishment, the Foundation has sought to expand its scope of support, , among other things, by offering student mentoring opportunities through organizing numerous educational and networking events. The most recent effort in this regard is a database of scholarships for studying in the United States of America (US), undertaken in cooperation with the Case Study Club of the Faculty of Organizational Sciences of the University of Belgrade. We consider this endeavor as a continuation of our main goal — facilitating young people's access to education with aim of returning home to use the acquired knowledge to foster the social and economic development of Serbia and North Macedonia. With this in mind, we present you with a database of scholarships available to international students interested in studying in the US. Scholarships are divided into four groups, based on their source of funding: (1) academic, (2) government, (3) non-government, and (4) company scholarships. The database includes 250 universities offering undergraduate scholarships and 150 universities offering master's scholarships. This list is not exhaustive and is meant to provide a starting point for your research. The selection criteria are based on the US News & World Report list of the best universities in the US. We hope for this database to provide you with a helpful tool for exploring educational opportunities in the US, as well as sources of finances for your studies. We also hope it will inspire you to get out of your comfort zone, learn abroad, and come back to work and prosper in your home country. We would be delighted to hear your feedback and comments!
