International Students

Grinnell College offers a full range of financial aid opportunities to international students and we are committed to providing affordable education to students from around the world.

Admission to Grinnell is highly selective, and the competition for financial aid is more competitive as the applicant’s demonstrated financial need increases.  Students who demonstrate academic excellence and who maintain active cocurricular involvement are especially attractive to our admissions committee, regardless of financial need.
