Financial Aid for International Students

Financial_Aid.png 

Looking for financial aid? Many universities offer financial assistance for international students, but, every school is different. There are many forms of aid including scholarships, grants, work-study, and loans. These are often grouped into two types: merit-based and need-based

Merit-Based financial assistance is usually in the form of scholarships and grants and is awarded on the basis of academic merit or other qualifications or achievements.

Need-Based financial assistance is usually a combination of scholarships, grants, work-study, and aid based solely on the financial need of the prospective student and their family. 

The table below highlights institutions for which the Duolingo English Test meets English proficiency requirements and offer some form of financial aid to international students. To learn more about a school’s financial aid policy, visit their website.
