Grants for International Students

Saint Louis University dedicates a limited number of need-based grant awards to undergraduate international students. Only first-time Saint Louis University students attending the St. Louis campus may be considered for aid.

To be considered for one of these grants, international students must complete College Board's CSS/Financial Aid Profile. These limited awards may be combined with other Saint Louis University scholarships up to but not exceeding the cost of tuition.

Recipients of the awards will receive notice through the regular Saint Louis University award notice process. You will receive a letter through the mail first, with future notices sent via email.
