Being a diverse country, the United States of America has been home to many students from different races and ethnicities, particularly students from India. For decades, the country has been one of the top choices for Indian students for its high-quality teaching, diversity, and welcoming culture. According to the Times Higher Education Global University Rankings, 50% of the leading 50 world universities are from the US, with 8 of them positioned in the top 10. Approximately 193,124 Indian students were studying in the US during the 2019-20 academic year. In fact, through both Republican and Democrat administrations, one thing has always remained constant – America’s reputation as a leader in global Higher Education.

The USA has a special allure and has always been drawing talented students like a magnet. Studying abroad in an American university will allow for invaluable academic, professional, and personal growth and open up an infinite number of career opportunities after graduation. According to the Association of International Educators NAFSA, International education advances learning and scholarship, fosters understanding and respect among people of diverse backgrounds and perspectives, is essential for developing globally competent individuals. It is for these reasons, American universities are keen to make sure that their student bodies are drawn from talented people across the world, including India.
