International Applicant Financial Aid
Whitman College provides a comprehensive, diversified financial aid program — including scholarships, grants, employment opportunities and loans — to assist in financing a college education. Need-based scholarships for international students are calculated based on the student's demonstrated financial need and are renewable for four years. 100% of demonstrated need will be met for students outside of the United States and Canada. Learn more about our financial aid opportunities.
Students and families who are applying for need-based financial aid must submit the Whitman International Student Financial Aid Application (WISFAA). This is an international financial aid application that students seeked need-based financial aid.
In some cases, merit-based scholarships are available to international students who do not demonstrate any financial need. No additional materials are required to qualify. All international students may also apply for scholarships in music, art, debate or theatre. Separate applications for these scholarships will be available once your Common Application has been submitted to Whitman. Please take care to check individual deadlines and requirements, as they differ between scholarships.
International students have the opportunity to work on campus up to 20 hours per week while classes are in session and up to 40 hours per week during holidays and breaks. The Career and Community Engagement Center is an excellent resource in securing these opportunities.
