Financial Aid for International Students
Certification of Finances
An international applicant is required to have a financial sponsor complete the Certification of Finances form and submit a bank statement issued within the past six months. Both the Certification of Finances and supporting bank statement must show that the sponsor is willing to pay and can afford the cost of the student’s education.
You do not need to submit any additional forms to be considered for a scholarship. All scholarship decisions are based on a student’s academic history. Scholarship amounts range from $5,000 to $15,000 for full-time students taking classes on Albright’s campus. If awarded, the scholarship is renewable for up to four years provided you maintain satisfactory grades. Half of the scholarship amount is applied to your bill at the start of the fall semester; the other half is applied at the start of the spring semester.
On-campus jobs may be available but will not be a significant source of income. International students are permitted to work no more than 20 hours per week and will usually earn less than $2,000 a year.
