    What you're looking for is a masters degree not an associates degree. I have tried to look for funding for a masters for myself but have only found the Full bright which is extremely hard to get.

    What sort of masters are you looking to fund?

    For the ones I am applying for this year (professional schools of International Relations) they have great funding packages for all students...even internationals. You need a few years of work experience in an international organisation and good languages. But it is always an option if you want to study in the US.

    Huh? An Associate's Degree is an UG degree in the States, not a Master's. In the US system, it's AA --> BA --> MA.

    I'm a little confused.
