Financial aid regulations for international students differ from those for US citizens, but some financial aid options for international students may still be available.
For some merit scholarships, students are automatically considered when they are accepted for admission to Michigan Tech. For other merit scholarships, students must submit a separate application. The criteria used to determine eligibility for a merit scholarship will vary depending on the scholarship. Please review our Scholarships page for more information about merit scholarships that are available and the specific eligibility criteria for those scholarships.
