Each year Colorado College awards scholarships to foreign students (non-U.S. citizens and non-U.S. permanent residents) enrolling as degree-seeking students. We evaluate the amount each family can contribute toward the total cost of attendance, including tuition, housing, meals, health insurance, books, personal expenses, and transportation to and from a student’s home country.

Typical awards include up to $2,000 in institutional work study (campus job). The scholarship is renewed every year, up to four consecutive years, until graduation. Thirty-six percent of admitted international students were offered need-based financial assistance, ranging from $10,133 to $54,832. The average need-based international student grant was $45,293. More than $1.75 million was offered to international students in need-based or merit-based assistance.


International students who wish to apply for need-based financial aid should indicate that on their application (the application specifically asks if you will be applying for financial aid). If you need financial aid, you must complete the CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE Online by November 15 for Early Action and Early Decision Round One, January 1 for Early Decision Round Two, or February 15 for Regular Action. Admission and scholarship offers are sent by the last week of March.


Students who have earned an undergraduate degree from another college or university are not be eligible for financial aid from Colorado College.
