No. While we encourage non-US citizens to complete the financial aid forms (declaration of finances/ FIF and the College Board’s ISFA) as accurately as possible, we do not take these documents into consideration when reviewing students for any potential merit aid. Our international applicants are highly encouraged to apply for merit-based scholarships through the . Students considered for the prestigious program are reviewed solely on their academic and personal merits. Finances are not considered.

The FIF and ISFA are used to help determine how much financial need-based aid is awarded to the student. As well, because of this, we advise international students to apply for financial aid only if they do not have the resources to fund their education, and to complete the financial aid forms mentioned above.
