Financial aid for international students is *extremely* limited, especially given the number of applications (for admission and aid) that we receive from abroad. Roughly 1,000 students with international backgrounds applied for admission to the class of 2011 (a figure not uncommon for us nowadays), and in most years close to 90% of them apply for financial aid. We are able to fund a *total* of 8-10 students per year out of this group... and to further complicate the issue, all international transfer students also compete for these precious funds, as well.
Really, your best resource is our Director of Admission, Steve Thomas, who works with international students and travels a fair bit outside the U.S. (he's in Asia for a large part of August/September each year). His email address is email@example.com.
