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.

On-Campus Visits

A campus visit is one of the best ways to decide whether Grinnell is a good fit for you! For the most productive visit to campus, we recommend prospective students and their families attend an information session followed by a campus tour, each of which will last about an hour. Additional visit activities, such as a class visit or lunch with a current student, will extend your time on campus. Visit activities are limited during examination periods, breaks, and holidays.  

Scholarships

TRUSTEE HONOR SCHOLARSHIP 

Awarded for outstanding academic achievements, the Trustee Honor Scholarship is merit assistance and does not have to be repaid. If you are receiving grant, loan, or employment assistance in addition to the Trustee Honor Scholarship indicated on your award notification, you must complete Grinnell's regular application process by our published deadline each year. Once you have paid your deposit, a special certificate for the Trustee Honor Scholarship will be sent to your high school principal for presentation at graduation or honor ceremonies.

Ensembles

Joining a Music Department ensemble is an enjoyable, hands-on way of exploring music you might not encounter in any other way, guided by faculty who are experts in the field. It can provide you with an experience that is intellectually stimulating, aesthetically rewarding, and fun to do with your friends.

Courses

The Grinnell-in-Washington DC program is offered in the first semester of each academic year. One core course of the curriculum changes from year to year, emphasizing some new aspect of Washington and its resources. The course reflects the expertise of the Grinnell faculty member leading the program that fall and lends the program some balance in the liberal arts to go with its emphasis on internships, professional development, and the world of policy. All students also take a second course on public policy, POL 295.

International Visiting Fellows

The International Visiting Fellows program is designed to allow Grinnell faculty to bring scholars and artists from international locations to Grinnell, for a minimum stay of two weeks. Each International Visiting Fellow teaches a short course or course unit within an existing academic department. Fellows also give a public presentation during their stay on campus. This is an excellent way to complement a department’s curriculum and to introduce students to a scholar or artist who works outside the United States.
