International Financial Aid
Funding your education abroad is always a challenge, and it is one of the most discussed topics on our forums and email inquiries. We have created the International Financial Aid pages to be a central resource for students to learn more about various funding options and how to successfully support your international education though a number of different sources.
As a real option for many international students, International Student Loans can provide funding for the entire cost of your college or university while studying in the USA or Canada. We have developed a comparison tool that matches students with eligible loans. Students can choose their loan and apply right online as long as they have a US citizen or permanent resident to cosign.
For many international students, studying in the USA is not possible without substantial financial aid from their university. Tuition can range dramatically depending on the school and the amount of financial assistance offered to international students can vary as well. To help you during the school selection process, we have a database of what financial aid colleges and universities offer to their international students.
Powered by our partner, 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, grants, and fellowships are available to students study in the USA and around the world. You can search awards by what you are studying, where you are studying, and where you are from. Learn more about each, ask questions, and apply.
We have compiled a list of articles that will provide you with help and advice when looking for international financial aid. This resource provides you with information on what to look out for when it comes to scholarships, how to get funding for community colleges, how to evaluate school costs, and what you need to open a bank account. Be prepared to fund, budget, and pay for college overseas.
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 fellow students out. This is a great way to get your questions answered, learn from other people’s experiences, and exchange ideas.
Keep up with the very latest international financial aid news from around the world with our financial aid blog. This blog will cover topics such as budgeting, financial aid, loans, bank accounts, and more. We’ll discuss how to budget, ways you can save money, information about student loans, and more! Every week we will also provide you with a scholarship pick-of-the-week to make sure you are aware of the newest awards.
