International Student
Funding Program

General Information

In an effort to assist international students who are experiencing financial hardship due to unforeseen circumstances, ISSS has a very limited amount of financial assistance available for international students at the U of MN-Twin Cities campus.

In order to be eligible for this funding, an international student must be in F-1 or J-1 student status and enrolled at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. Students who are applying for a change of status to F-1 or J-1 student, students who are in the process of adjusting their status to permanent residency, or students changing their status from F-1 or J-1 student to any other non-immigrant visa are not eligible for any ISSS International Student Funding.

ISSS International Student Funding assists with the cost of tuition, fees, and expenses related to emergencies.
