Financial Aid and Scholarships

Financial Aid includes scholarships, loans and grants awarded to students to help hem pay the tuition. While international students cannot apply for Federal Aid, scholarships are available. Admission to SLU requires proof of financial support, but, just in case you were wondering, there are scholarships available for international students. You can apply for any of the top scholarships when applying to admission to SLU. But for those who are already here without a scholarship, there's still a number of options. The SLU Matteo Ricci Scholarship awards $2500 every year to international students with exceptional academic and leadership achievement. So there's reason to study hard!

There are also scholarship opportunities from private sources. FastWeb has many scholarship and internship opportunities that internationals may be eligible to receive. They usually require you to write an essay. But keep in mind that scholarship amounts vary and will only help you out in small amounts, so it is best to make sure you have secured financial support for the duration of your stay here.
