Northwestern University
Northwestern University does not offer merit based scholarships (based on academics) to any of its
students, domestic or international. However, Northwestern does award financial aid to U.S. citizens
and permanent residents on the basis of financial need. In addition, Northwestern will offer need-based
- 49 -
Researched by Jorge Nieves,
Tammy Spencer &
Annette Vitale-Salajanu
financial awards to a small group of international students entering in Fall 2006. Please see the
information under Financial Aid for International Students for details on this new policy.
Students in the process of obtaining permanent residency should be aware that they cannot be
considered for financial aid until they receive actual documentation of their immigration status in the
country. The following is a list of acceptable documentation that establishes aid eligibility:
For Permanent Residents:
1. Permanent Resident Card (formerly Resident Alien Card): Form I-551 (also acceptable is the no
longer used Alien Registration Receipt Card: Form I-151)
2. Arrival/Departure Record: Form I-94 (current) with an A-Number annotated on it with one of the
following endorsements:
(a) "Processed for I-551..." with valid expiration date
(b) "Temporary Form I-551..." with appropriate entry information, date, and signatures
3. Home country passport endorsed "Processed for I-551" with valid expiration date
For Other Eligible Non-Citizens:
Other non-citizens may be eligible for federal financial aid. The most commonly presented evidence is
a current I-94 with a stamp indicating specific status such as refugees or asylees. If you have specific
questions about your status, please contact us.
Financial Aid for International Students
Northwestern University will offer need-based financial aid awards to a small group of international
students entering in Fall 2006. Citizens of countries outside the United States who apply under Regular
Decision for financial aid will be reviewed as a separate group. The usual selective admission criteria,
as well as the amount of financial aid needed by an applicant, will be factors in the admission
committee's decision. As a result, Northwestern will not offer admission to some candidates who are
otherwise well-qualified. For these reasons, the admission rate for international applicants requesting
aid is substantially lower than for those not requesting aid. Only those students who apply for and
receive financial aid for their freshman year will be eligible to receive financial assistance in
subsequent years. There is no financial aid available for international transfer applicants or
international students applying under Early Decision.
U.S. citizens living abroad, permanent residents of the U.S., and other eligible non-U.S. citizens may
receive financial aid from Northwestern and should follow the same application process as U.S.
- 50 -
Researched by Jorge Nieves,
Tammy Spencer &
Annette Vitale-Salajanu
citizens for financial aid. Enrolling permanent residents will be asked to submit the proper documents
showing their immigration status to finalize the award.
International students receiving financial aid from Northwestern must still plan to contribute to funding
their educational expenses. For example, students will be responsible for travel expenses to the U.S.
from their home country. Northwestern University cannot assume responsibility for economic changes
such as currency fluctuation, nor can it replace lost support that a student may have expected to receive
from relatives, sponsors, or government and corporate grants.
The Office of Undergraduate Financial Aid has the most detailed and current information about
financial aid policy and further instructions on how to correctly complete financial aid forms.
International Students Planning To Pursue Advanced Degrees
International students receiving need-based financial aid from Northwestern for their undergraduate
degree should be aware that this funding will not continue if they choose to pursue medical school, law
school, graduate school, or any other professional studies at Northwestern University.

Northwestern Scholarship assistance
Any undergraduate student enrolled in a degree-seeking program may apply for consideration for
Northwestern Scholarship assistance. All NU Scholarships are awarded on the basis of demonstrated
financial need and availability of funding at the time the student applies for aid. Approximately onehalf of all Northwestern undergraduate students receive NU Scholarship assistance, and recipients
come from families with a wide range of income backgrounds. The chart below illustrates the average
NU Scholarship amounts based on income level for the 2005-06 entering freshman class. Please note
that many, if not most, of the families with higher income levels who receive NU Scholarships have
more than one child attending college.

Agribusiness League & United Agricultural Benefit Trust Scholarship Program
Since its inception in 1989, United Agribusiness League and United Agricultural Benefit Trust have combined to
award more than $500,000 in scholarship monies to students studying agriculture and related fields of study. The
money we've invested in the ag leaders of tomorrow has already paid dividends. Upon graduation, UAL
scholarship winners have taken their place in management, government, market development, international sales
and field supervisory capacities with agribusiness firms and in their own family businesses. Along with UAL's
assistance, some have gone on to advanced graduate studies in agriculture.
In 2006 UAL has available through the League and its sponsored health care benefit trust, United Agricultural
Benefit Trust (UABT), over $50,000 in scholarship grants to help fund the education of students who will pursue
careers in agriculture. Any ag student presently enrolled, or who will be enrolled anytime during the 2006/7
scholastic year in studies related to the agricultural industry should consider applying for a UAL/UABT
scholarship. Only students presently residing in the United States, Canada and Mexico are eligible for the
UAL/UABT scholarship program.
The Requirements for applying for a UAL or UABT Scholarship:
The rules for both programs are the same, with one key eligibility difference. Only an employee, spouse or child
participating in the UABT health care plan is eligible to receive a scholarship from the League's Benefit Trust. No
affiliation with UAL is required to win a League scholarship. Here are the requisite elements that must all be met in
order to have a scholarship application considered.

The UAL Scholarship Search Program utilizes a database of over 9,000 sources, having a cumulative total of
more than $2.8 billion in educational funds to qualified students. Through our Scholarship Search Program, UAL
