Benedictine College offers a limited number of academic scholarships for international students. Scholarships are based on academic performance, standardized test scores, and English proficiency. Applicants must be accepted for admission before a scholarship can be awarded.
International students may work on-campus. Students working on campus typically earn $500 to $1,000 per year. Due to the competition for on-campus jobs, we cannot guarantee that any international or domestic student will get a job. Students can create a profile on HIRE Benedictine to view available on-campus positions. The U.S. government allows international students to work off-campus only in specific situations.
Only U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible to apply for loans and grants from the U.S. government. We suggest you visit the Ministry of Education website of you country. Some countries offer financial aid to their citizens studying overseas.
