Funding your education abroad is always a challenge, and one of the most discussed subjects on the forums and in email inquiries to us. We have created the International Financial Aid pages as a central resource guide for students to learn more about various funding options and how to obtain them.
A real option for many students, the International Student Loan can provide funding for your entire college or university time whilst studying in the USA or Canada. Students can apply online and will need a US Citizen or permanent resident to cosign the loan with them.
For many international students, studying in the USA is not possible without substantial financial aid from their school. Schools in the USA vary tremendously in what assistance they offer to international students. To help in your school selection process, we have compiled a database of what colleges and universities in the USA offer aid, and how much, to international students.
Powered by our partner site, InternationalScholarships.com, the search tool provides you with free access to over 1,000 awards that provides over $1,000,000 in funding for international students. Scholarships are available to students looking to study in the USA, plus for those looking to studying all around the world.
We have compiled a list of articles that will provide you with help and advice when looking for international financial aid. Topics include how to effectively search for scholarships, what to look for in an international student loan and much more.
If you have a financial aid question that is not answered in this section, or if your experience has given you valuable insight into international financial aid, try the international financial aid forums where you can post questions, answer questions and help out fellow students.
Keep up with the very latest international financial aid news from around the world with our financial aid blog, covering topics such as new scholarships, financial aid news, new loan products and more.
