International Applicants




Sarah Lawrence College offers a combination of merit and need-based scholarships to international citizens. In any given year, anywhere between 30-50% of our international students are scholarship recipients. These funds are highly competitive, so here are several facts international students should know:

  • To be considered, students must complete the International Student Financial Aid Application.  This and other requirements will be made available through an application portal upon completion of the Common Application.
  • We also require official translated documentation of the family income. This can be tax returns or statements of income from the parent(s)’ employer and bank statements. If the student or parent(s) have no other documentation of income, each must fill out our Non-tax Filer Statement form. This will be made available through the application portal.

  • We distribute all of our available funds to those students who apply by the stated deadlines. Students who do not complete the application requirements will be ineligible for funding during their four years at Sarah Lawrence.
  • Scholarships are renewed annually, provided the student maintains satisfactory academic progress. The amount generally ranges from $10,000 – $25,000 per year.
  • We will update an applicants online financial aid checklist if additional documentation is required in order to complete the application.
