Financial aid for international student?

edited April 2007 in Smith College
I work at an Ivy and have befriended a young woman (jr in high school) from a small country who is here accompanying a parent who is a international grad student at this Ivy.

She attends our local high school, and does reasonably well at this very competitive school. She's interested in Biology/pre-med and is very serious and hard-working. I'm helping her with college admissions, and would love to recommend Smith to her, but she would need full aid and I don't know if that is realistic at Smith.

Any advice or info appreciated!

    Hello, I am an intel. Smith give pretty decent aid for intl student and I have heard of intel getting a full ride or near full. So I think it wouldn't be much of a problem if she do indeed need a full ride.

    She should also look at MHC, which is known for giving aid to internationals.
