You never have to pay them back.

  • International Scholarships — We welcome scholars from around the world.

Learn About Scholarships


Federal and state grant programs can help pay your college costs. Grants are typically need-based and are not required to be paid back.

You and your parents can borrow up to the full amount of your estimated Cost of Attendance (or budget) each academic year. Unlike scholarships, all loans must be repaid, usually with interest.
