Though international students are not eligible for federal student aid, they may be eligible for institutional aid and should check with the institution's financial aid office regarding eligibility. Many scholarships for undergraduate study are available only to U.S. citizens and permanent residents. However, there are free scholarship databases as well as private, corporate, nonprofit, and government scholarship funds that serve undergraduate international students. While school procedures vary, prospective international students may be required to fill out the International Student Financial Aid Application, or ISFAA, or the CSS Profile, both of which are distributed by the nonprofit College Board. Some universities may also have their own forms. Institutions that offer need-based aid to international students require the family's financial data in order to calculate need eligibility. Instead of the FAFSA, many require the CSS Profile or the ISFAA.

A scholarship is a merit-based form of financial aid which is awarded to a student by a private or public post-secondary college, university, or other academic institutions. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of the student’s academic, sporting excellence, and performance in extracurricular activities. Any student enrolled in an accredited college, university or other academic institutions imparting higher education can apply for scholarships. However, scholarships are offered at the undergraduate level after which they can be applied in the form of fellowships. To apply for a scholarship, a student has to contact the respective financial aid office at a university or career school. Some prestigious, highly competitive scholarships that are well-known even outside the academic community, are Fulbright Scholarship, Chevening Scholarships (UK), and the Rhodes Scholarship.
