Fully Funded : International Scholarships to Study in Latin America

If you’ve checked out the latest QS Latin America University Rankings, you’ll know there are many leading universities to choose from across the region, many of them also featured in the overall world rankings.

Tuition fees and living costs are generally significantly lower in Latin America than in the rest of the Americas (we’re looking at you, US), but a little extra funding is still likely to come in handy for many international students.

Below you’ll find a selection of current study abroad scholarships and funding opportunities on offer to those hoping to study in Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Argentina or elsewhere in the Latin American region. While some are government scholarships, others are offered by individual universities or external organizations, for students at all levels of study.
