Win a Westbon scholarship

Westbon, a lending platform for international students living in the United States, recently launched a new scholarship program. The college scholarships are offered to both undergraduate and graduate students studying in the United States on an F1 Visa.

"We understand the painful process of finding scholarships, and international students often meet a lot of restrictions during the process. They are given very few options,” said Westbon CEO and founder Hao Liu.

“We started this program designed for international students to assist their studies and lives in the United States," added Liu.

Here’s the good news, graduates and undergraduates in all fields of study qualify for this scholarship.

To apply for a Westbon scholarship, students are encouraged to submit application materials using the organization's online form which can be found on the website (here.)

Westbon said it wanted applicants with “a strong academic” history; “travelers, artists and designers” with a story to tell; and “candidates with strong entrepreneurship” or leadership skills.
