Does Penn give financial aid to international students?
Each year, Penn commits millions of dollars in undergraduate aid funds to support international students. International students admitted as financial aid recipients will receive need-based aid that covers 100% of their demonstrated need, just like a student from the U.S.
How do I apply for financial aid as an international student?
International students, including students from Mexico, should follow the Checklist for International Students on the Student Financial Services website. Citizens and permanent residents of Canada must complete Penn’s Financial Aid Application for Canadian Citizens and submit copies of the student’s and parents’ Canadian tax returns.
How do I complete a financial aid application for each program?
Each program has its own requirements for completing a financial aid application. Navigate the menus in this section to find the checklist and relevant deadlines for your academic program. Each checklist includes links to relevant application materials and contact information if you have additional questions about your aid application.
What do I do if my financial aid application is incomplete?
If your application is incomplete, you can review a list of missing documents. Prospective undergraduate students who have completed a financial aid application can view their financial aid eligibility in their admissions portal and will also receive a printed award notice in the mail along with their admissions decision.
How is my financial aid package made up?
Second, your financial aid package is entirely grant-based, which means that it’s made up of scholarships and work-study funds that you don’t have to pay back. To learn more, check out the details below or refer to the Student Registration and Financial Services website directly.
