Financial Assistance & Scholarship Resources

All F-1 and J-1 international students are required to show proof of funding for a minimum of one year with the expectation that they will continue to have access to that funding throughout their education. In some cases, there are unexpected changes in a student's financial situation that require them to seek external support to continue their studies.

Below are financial aid programs available through the Berkeley International Office that can help international students with unexpected financial challenges to complete their degree program. Please also see the "Useful Links" for additional financial support resources and information.
