MACALESTER COLLEGE (MN) INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
FINANCIAL AID OPPORTUNITIES
Macalester’s broad international representation is made possible in great
measure by a significant institutional commitment to providing financial
assistance to international students. Approximately 80% of the
international students who enroll at Macalester received financial aid awards. We are committed to
meeting the full demonstrated financial need of every student we admit.
The financial aid budget is not unlimited, so the amount of financial aid an applicant requires is a
factor as we decide which students will be offered admission, and students requiring large
scholarships will face greater competition in the selection process. Note: Macalester only provides
need-based financial aid to international students.
