Financial Aid from Georgetown University
Georgetown offers a very limited number of need-based scholarships to selected first-year international students who demonstrate financial need.
Prospective international students who wish to be considered for one of these awards should indicate their interest on the application for undergraduate admission and should submit a CSS/Financial Aid Profile online.
Visit Georgetown's undergraduate financial aid website for more information within the Office of Student Financial Services.
The Georgetown University Graduate School offers a limited number of awards to students in various departments based on academic qualifications.
- Assistantships: stipends provided in return for service in teaching, research, or other matters of an academic nature
- Fellowships: stipend without a work obligation
- Scholarships: tuition grants
All awards are based on departmental recommendations, and international students compete for these awards on an equal basis with U.S. citizens. For more information, graduate students should contact their department or graduate program and visit the graduate financial aid website within the Office of Student Financial Services.
The Office of Billing and Payment Services offers several payment plan options, including one specifically for international students. Students should contact the Office of Billing and Payment Services for additional information on payment plans.
Financial Aid Resources in Your Home Country
There may be a number of financial aid resources available through your home country government. The Ministry of Education in your home country or your embassy in Washington, DC should be able to provide you with information on available scholarship programs.
Loans & Scholarships
The Office of Financial Services lists all private lenders that students (both domestic and international) have utilized in the past three years on their website. Select the expand button at the bottom of the page to see the full list. Some of these lenders may require co-signers or not be eligible for international students.
Students may also reference this list of external international scholarships and private lenders who provide education loans and scholarships specifically to international students. This is not a recommended or preferred lender list. This is simply a list of international resources that has been collected based on available public information, for your convenience. The list may not be exhaustive, so we recommend you also explore additional loan options that may be available through other resources.
Students have the right and ability to select the lender of their choice and are not required to use any of the resources on this list. Students considering a private education loan program should carefully consider the terms and conditions of the loan. Individual lenders will, at their discretion, evaluate credit history.
Georgetown University does not endorse, recommend, monitor, or otherwise take responsibility for the products or services offered by any organization listed on the external scholarship and private lender's list.
