Students who are not U.S. citizens, permanent residents, or other eligible non-citizens (status of refugee, asylum, humanitarian parole, Cuban-Haitian Entrant) are considered international students. Students who hold F1, F2, J1, J2, or G series visas are also considered international students. International students are not eligible for federal financial aid, but in some cases may be eligible to apply for Johns Hopkins University financial assistance.
International students who are not offered scholarship assistance for their first year will not be eligible for scholarship assistance in any subsequent years while they are undergraduates. This policy applies to students who experience a change in financial circumstances, as well as to students who later attain citizenship or eligible non-citizenship status during their undergraduate career. Students who attain citizenship status will be considered for federal financial aid (if their citizenship status is confirmed), but they will not be offered Johns Hopkins University grant assistance.
Scholarship assistance is limited for international students transferring from another university. As with freshman applicants, Johns Hopkins University will offer admission to transfer financial aid applicants only if funds are available to meet that student's financial need.
To apply for the Johns Hopkins University International Scholarship:
Any applicant who cannot complete the PROFILE online should contact the Office of Student Financial Services by email to firstname.lastname@example.org to explain why you cannot complete the application and to request a paper application alternative.
Private loans and/or scholarships may be available for international graduate students. Most lenders require a co-signer who is a U.S. citizen. Refer to the Loan and Scholarships sections of this website for more information.
