Financial Aid for International Undergraduates

Financial Aid Options

Financial aid packages for international students could consist of a Bennington Grant, a Bennington scholarship, and an allocation for campus employment.

This funding is awarded based on both a student’s financial need and the merit of his or her application. Only a limited number of financial aid packages are awarded to international students, and the College is not able to meet the full need of all admitted students.

How to Apply

After your Admission application has been submitted (and indicates you will apply for aid), we will email you a financial aid ID. Use this ID to log into your personal My Financial Aid page and complete the online Bennington aid application. Check the documents tab for other required forms.

Submit the College Board CSS PROFILE electronically.

Scholarships and Grants

Bennington aid is awarded to international applicants based both on a student’s financial need and on his or her merit. These funds do not need to be re-paid.

On-Campus Jobs

Many aid awards include a job allocation, which means the student may apply for specific on-campus jobs. A student is not guaranteed a job during any given term, but most students who try to obtain work are successful. Earnings are paid directly to the student and are most often used to pay personal expenses during the term.
