10 Colleges That Offer the Most Financial Aid to International Students


Stanford University

Stanford University

According to a US News report, 10 colleges go above and beyond in offering financial aid to international students.

International students are not eligible for US federal aid programs, though some state schools will offer in-state tuition to international students.

Usually, though, attending college in the US is a very costly option for international students.

While getting a job as an international student may offset some expenses, it may not be enough for many others.

Fortunately, there is some hope for international students.

In 2013, 10 US institutions of higher learning offered some very impressive financial aid packages to students from abroad:

Name of College Number of international undergrads who received aid during 2013-2014 Average amount of aid offered
Yale University (CT) 349 $56,630
Amherst College MA) 155 $55,121
Williams College (MA) 87 $54,978
Wesleyan University (CT) 80 $54,774
University of Chicago (IL) 80 $53,637
Skidmore College (NY) 98 $53,600
Stanford University (CA) 135 $53,287
Bates College (ME) 88 $52,427
Trinity College (CT) 159 $52,355
Harvard University (MA) 540 $51,854

Each one of these colleges ranks in the top 50 in their respective categories in US News rankings.

Every one of these schools is very selective, and students will need to have excellent grades and overall applications to be admitted to one of these colleges. (Make sure your college application has a professional transcript translation.)

Of course, plenty of other colleges offer financial aid to international students. If your ability to go to college in the US depends on financial aid, make sure to research this when deciding where to apply to college.

  1. My Scholarships Says:

    That is a great list to start with. Thank you Kaytie for posting it. I wouldn’t limit myself just with those schools. As a former international student, I worked hard on my SAT scores to make myself marketable. The higher your scores, the better your bargain power is with American universities. Make myself marketable and then start approaching your target schools.
