Give: International Scholarships

Donations to international scholarships provide invaluable support to international students, study abroad participants, and students involved in international activities on campus. While international students at UNT must provide proof of funding for their first year of study in order to be issued an I-20 and visa, students spend anywhere from 2-7 years at UNT depending on their degree plan and program. International students in particular are ineligible for FAFSA and often have incredible difficulty securing private loans in the U.S.

Donations to any of the funds listed below go a long way toward supporting UNT students.

International Affairs thanks you in advance for your generosity and support.

International Student Emergency Fund

The International Student Emergency Fund provides support to students facing a financial emergency due to natural disasters or economic hardships in their home countries. Students must present evidence of need to International Affairs to request support.
