Funding your university study

Most international students who study at Widener University use their own resources to pay for their education.

There is limited financial assistance available for international students, but there are some sources of funding if you need help paying for university. However, be aware that there is a lot of competition for international student scholarships. Attaining high grades is a very important factor. More aid is available for graduate and research students, than for undergraduate study.

If you need a full scholarship to study at a US university, organizations in your own country can be good sources.
