Scholarships for International Students

International students are not eligible for financial aid. However, they may be able to apply for some scholarships. If students need to obtain financial aid or an international scholarship the best place to look is your home country. Student loans and scholarships may be available from your government, local businesses, organizations and foundations. 

Other resources may be international humanitarian organizations that want to promote international education and cultural exchange with the U.S. Included in these organizations are the United Nations, the World Health Organization, the League of Red Cross Societies and the World Council of Churches. Financial aid and scholarships from these organizations are very competitive, so start the search early.
