Hao Liu, CEO and co-founder of Boro, explains Boro's commitment to helping international students: "We understand how painful it might be as an international student to find qualifying scholarships in the U.S. There are very few scholarships in the U.S. that are dedicated to international students. We believe that one's potential shouldn't be hindered by one's financial situation."
