Tulane offers both merit- and need-based aid programs. All admitted students are considered for merit-based scholarships, and the review process is need-blind. Several need-based aid awards and programs are also available through our Office of Financial Aid. Though those need-based aid awards are usually reserved for U.S. Citizens and Residents, they do have a section for international students with more resources.
Graduate students should contact their academic departments to learn about financial resources.
In early 2018, the Office of International Students and Scholars in collaboration with the Undocumented Student Support Committee (USSC) launched the International/Undocumented Student Emergency Fund. Access to this emergency fund can help you face financial challenges. Learn more about the fund and how to apply here.
If you are experiencing an economic hardship, please contact the OISS as soon as possible. You may be eligible for special work authorization or resources.
