Before exploring the list of international scholarships, it's important to note that international students are individuals in the U.S. under non-immigrant F and J visas. If you hold other non-immigrant visa statuses (such as A visa, H, L, and others), you may qualify for TAFSA aid if you meet the minimum requirements. However, students with refugee or asylee status are not classified as international students.
International students on non-immigrant visa statuses are not eligible to apply for Federal Financial Aid. Instead, students with F and J visas can seek opportunities through the International Program Scholarships.
