Financial Aid for International Students

Scholarships for International Students
You will undoubtedly encounter several scholarship matching services that, for a fee, will offer to search a database of scholarships for awards that match your profile. Unfortunately, the vast majority of awards in these databases are restricted to US citizens and permanent residents. Don't waste your money on such services.

The following databases are dedicated to listing scholarships for international students in specific countries. You should also consider searching the free databases of scholarships on the FinAid site, since some of them include scholarships for international students. The FastWeb database, in particular, has good coverage of the awards available for international students.

A word of caution: If a scholarship has an application fee, don't apply. If you have to pay money to get money, it is probably a scam. For more information about scholarship scams, the unclaimed aid myth, and related topics, see the Scholarship Scams section of the FinAid site.
