Financial Aid Information for International Students

International students will be considered for selected Medill scholarships. International students should plan to bear most, if not the entire cost, of attending Medill.

Due to the intensive and practical nature of our program, Medill does not offer teaching assistantships or fellowships.

Please visit Northwestern University's Student Financial Services website for a list of lenders that provide loans to international students who have a U.S. citizen or permanent resident as co-maker/co-signer for the loan. Students may not use this loan to secure their student visa. After you begin your graduate program at Medill, you are welcome to pursue a private bank loan option.
