Financial Aid Resources for International Students

Listed here are some resources from agencies, institutions, and foundations outside of Tufts University that offer scholarships/grants and financial aid for foreign nationals who wish to study in the U.S.A. You will find two types of financial aid: (1)scholarships/grants and (2)loans.

  1. Scholarships/grants are aid which does not have to be repaid.
  2. Loans are money borrowed to cover school costs, which must be repaid (usually with interest) over a specified period of time (usually after the student has left school or graduated).

Please note that each type of aid requires specific conditions and qualifications for applicants, such as a field of study, current degree held, age, gender, citizenship, and so on. You need to look through the instructions thoroughly. There tends to be more aid in specific areas of study such as Art, Environmental Studies, Engineering, and Natural Sciences. Also, the higher a degree sought, the more opportunities exist. We hope this information will be helpful for you to find some aids suit your qualifications and needs. Good luck!
