International Financial Aid
Funding an education abroad is a challenge for many students, and as a result it’s one of the most discussed topics within our blog, social media and email inquiries. If you need help finding the financial resources to support your international education, explore our International Financial Aid page and the various funding options available to you.
We have developed a comparison tool that matches international students like you with available student loans. To use our comparison tool you can simply enter your details on your citizenship, if you have a co-signer, and the state and school you plan to study at to see what loans are available to you. You can then compare the lenders provided to you and apply for a loan right online. As a real option for many international students, International Student Loans can provide funding for the entire cost of your college or university education, minus any other aid received; funds can be used on expenses like tuition, books and supplies, room and board, travel and transportation, and living expenses. Use our comparison tool to see what lenders are available to you.

A variety of scholarships, grants, and fellowships are available to students who want to study in the USA and around the world.

For many international students, studying in the USA is not possible without substantial financial aid from their university. However, tuition and financial assistance can vary dramatically at each school, which means it’s hard to budget. To help you during the school selection process, we have a database of what financial aid colleges and universities offer to their international students.
