International Students

International students are not eligible for federal or Boston University need-based financial aid. When you apply for admission to BU, you must submit evidence of financial support for your educational and living expenses.

A limited number of Sargent College merit scholarships are available to international graduate students. There is no separate application process; award decisions are based on admissions applications. If you receive a merit scholarship award, you’ll be notified in your letter of acceptance.

International students are also eligible for assistantships, which are awarded directly from the department to the student.
