Top 10 Colleges in the U.S. That Most Aid International Students
Some American colleges and universities offer considerable merit-based or need-based institutional scholarships to students from foreign countries. Students desiring this state of assistance will often fill out the College Board's College Scholarship Service Profile and may also propose an International Student Financial Aid Application.

International students who want to pursue a bachelor's degree in the U.S. should understand that the expense of their education is likely to be more heightened than what they might pay if they studied in their home country.
International students are usually ineligible for nationwide financial aid from the U.S. government. So, unlike domestic college candidates desiring assistance, undergraduate applicants from abroad don't usually fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, generally known as the FAFSA, unless they hold permanent resident status.
However, some American colleges and universities offer considerable merit-based or need-based institutional scholarships to students from foreign countries. Students desiring this state of assistance will often fill out the College Board's College Scholarship Service Profile and may also propose an International Student Financial Aid Application.
International students may also qualify for external college scholarships by nonprofit organizations or corporations.
Among the 887 undergraduate institutions that registered in an annual U.S News survey on how much financial aid they provided to a specific international student during the 2021-2022 school year. The average amount was approximately $22,000. Across the ten schools where typical financial aid awards for international students were most heightened, the average amount of scholarship money was almost $74,000.
The ten schools are on the East Coast- excluding Stanford University in California. All schools are costly private schools, with the sticker cost of tuition and fees for the 2022-2023 school year nearly $56,000.
Students should always keep in mind that the overall expense of attendance at undergraduate institutions goes farther than tuition and fees, including the cost of necessities such as housing, school books and supplies, food, transportation, and other personal expenses. A full-ride college scholarship, which some international students obtain, pays for all of these essentials.
Here's the list of the TEN undergraduate institutions in the U.S where the average amount of financial support for residents of other countries was most spaced-out. Unranked schools- which did not satisfy specific criteria demanded to be numerically ranked were not considered for this report.
