Funding for International Activities

International Students

Funding to Study at the U of M

Academic and Need-Based Scholarships for Undergraduates
The University of Minnesota offers undergraduate a variety of scholarships to international students based on merit and financial need.

Graduate Assistantships
For graduate and professional students, the most common financial assistance is through graduate assistantships (teaching or research under the direction of a faculty member), which are awarded by individual graduate programs. Qualified graduate students who receive an assistantship will have full or partial tuition waived and will receive a salary and health insurance.

International Student Funding Program
To assist international students who are experiencing financial hardship due to unforeseen circumstances, ISSS offers a very limited amount of financial aid to qualified international students in their last two semesters of study at the Twin Cities campus.
