With the increasing cost of education many qualified students from countries of the world are unable to afford an education at American universities. This in combination with a limited number of visa approvals available to international students means coming to study in the US is a difficult process.
However, the American organization, HTIR WORK-STUDY, USA, Inc., has found a unique way to solve this problem, at least for students applying for master’s degrees in the U.S. HTIR specializes in searching for universities that allow Master degree students to be employed in paid, off-campus internships, beginning as early as their first semester. Their salaries throughout the two years of their studies can cover the costs of their tuition, fees and much of their living expenses.
HTIR’s founder and owner, Dr. J. Fred Brandenfels, is an immigration Lawyer who has counseled and trained more than 3000 international students over a period of 30 years, most of whom have been successful in getting their visas. Dr. Brandenfels has agreed to orient each of HTIR’s work-study applicants to the many rules and regulations in U.S. Student Visa law, and to personally counsel and train each student in preparation for their visa interviews. Dr. Brandenfels guarantees that any applicant he counsels who does not obtain a visa will receive a 100% return of the $4,950 good faith security deposit that HTIR requires of all applicants who wish to engage the services of HTIR and of Dr. Brandenfels. This deposit is only required after an applicant receives acceptance and an I-20 into the school of their choice. After completing the visa training, if the applicant receives a visa and enrolls in their selected university, HTIR will grant to them the Preferred Student Assistance Fund, a tuition scholarship of $3,000.
