Financial Aid for International Students | St. Lawrence University Admissions

Financial Aid for International Students

St. Lawrence University offers both merit scholarships and need-based grants to international students. To apply for financial aid, students must indicate on their Common Application the desire to apply for financial aid and complete the Certificate of Finance form. The Common Application, Certificate of Finance form, and any required documentation must be submitted at the same time.

Merit Scholarships
St. Lawrence University reviews each application and awards merit to students based on their academic achievements. For international students, these merit awards are called International Scholarships. The scholarships range from $5,000 to full tuition.

The Canadian Scholars Program is a new scholarship program designed to identify and recognize talented Canadian students who wish to study in the United States. The scholarship value for the Canadian Scholars Program ranges from $25,000 to $50,000 USD per year, with four-year total values of $100,000 to $200,000 USD.

The Augsbury/North Country Scholarship is for North Country and Canadian high school students whose high schools participate in our program. The program provides a $128,000 scholarship ($32,000 per year) to selected scholars for up to four years or eight semesters.

Need-based Financial Aid
St. Lawrence reviews each application for need-based grants based on the information provided in the Certificate of Finance. These grants are added to the International Scholarships you will see in your financial aid award package.

Student Loans and Campus Employment
A small number of student loans and student employment opportunities are available to international students. Students granted these opportunities will see them outlined in their financial aid award.

International students should be aware that our merit scholarships, need-based grants, campus employment opportunities and student loans are very competitive.
