Financial Aid for International Students

Financial Aid Application

To apply for need-based financial aid, international students must submit the international student financial aid application (.pdf) and the certificate of finances (.pdf). It's important that you fill out this document accurately and completely. Incorrect or incomplete information can negatively affect your offer of admission.

Wooster International Scholarships

International student scholarships are awarded at Wooster on the basis of merit and/or need. This scholarship money does not need to be repaid, and is guaranteed for all four years of study as long as the student is making satisfactory progress towards graduation.


Students can find campus jobs that pay an hourly wage. Most student jobs pay U.S. $8.10/hour. Under U.S. immigration law, international students can only work up to 20-hours/week while classes are in session.

Financial Aid Awards

Financial aid awarded to international students is largely based on your family's financial circumstances. Most of our admitted international students will be able to contribute over 50% of the comprehensive cost of attendance. However, we do award merit scholarships to outstanding international applicants, and we also offer a limited number of financial awards that exceed $30,000 per year, including a few that cover full tuition.

Funding for Experiential Learning

Wooster provides a unique opportunity for students to receive fellowships to take advantage of research and internship opportunities, both in the U.S. and abroad, and even start their own business. Please click on the following to learn more: APEX fellowships, Copeland funding, and Launch Club.
