Devin Hemachandra of Asian International School (AIS) reached a Scholarships for USA (SUSA)  ( barely three months ago seeking admissions with financial aid to a US university, for fall 2013.

Certainly not a semester early for spring as many schools had passed the deadline for applications and also because traditionally US schools rarely offer admissions/offer financial aid for international students for spring.

Within days SUSA was able to attract excellent offers from five top engineering schools from five different states and all offering spring admissions.

After careful consideration Devin was selected for the University of Cincinnati (UC) a globally ranking research university and pioneers of coop education which exposes its students to chosen careers from the second year onward on paid internships.

UC was introduced to Sri Lanka by SUSA five years ago, in its mission to provide widest possible access for increasing numbers of Lankan youth to enter top US universities at the most affordable cost.
