Scholarship and Financial Resources

What financial support is available?

UW Scholarships

The Financial Aid Office at UW hosts a convenient online tool for finding institutional scholarships. Sign in to Academic Works to see what is available.


You are encouraged to also speak with your academic advisor or department staff about scholarships specific to your major and area of interest. In addition to department scholarships, your advisor may be able to recommend financial support from entities related to your field of study, such as alumni or businesses.

Severe Economic Hardship

Severe Economic Hardship is work authorization that allows for off-campus employment if jobs on-campus are either unavailable or insufficient, and a student is facing hardship that is caused by unforeseen circumstances beyond the student's control. Authorization is granted by USCIS for periods of up to one year at a time, and may be renewed.

To apply for Economic Hardship you must schedule an appointment with the ISS office and our advisors will help you prepare a packet of material to mail to USCIS. Conditions for eligibility as well as the required documents can be found on the ISS Economic Hardship Employment PDF below.

Outside Scholarships

There are a number of outside scholarships available for international students. Because they are often hard to find, not everyone applies even when there is money still available. ISS recommends that you apply for as many as as possible. 100 Scholarships for International Students 2017-2018
