Financial Aid for International Students

Lewis & Clark College seeks to be a community that is culturally, economically, socially and geographically diverse. To help achieve this goal, the college offers financial support to students who would not otherwise have the resources to enroll. Lewis & Clark offers both merit scholarships as well as need-based financial aid to international students.
