John Hopkins University invites applications from prospective international applicants for the 2015 John Hopkins University Scholarship. International students who are not offered scholarship assistance for their first year will not be eligible for scholarship assistance in any subsequent years while they are undergraduates.
This policy applies to students who experience a change in financial circumstances, as well as to students who later attain citizenship or eligible non-citizenship status during their undergraduate career. Students who attain citizenship status will be considered for federal financial aid (if their citizenship status is confirmed), but they will not be offered Johns Hopkins University grant assistance.
Worth of Award

  • They determine the financial need of the student based on the information submitted on the international aid application.
  • They aid packages assume that families will contribute to the extent they are able, and the remaining need is covered with Johns Hopkins University international scholarship.


  • Students who are not U.S. citizens, permanent residents, or other eligible non-citizens (status of refugee, asylum, humanitarian parole, Cuban-Haitian Entrant) are considered international students.
  • Students who hold F1, F2, J1, J2, or G series visas are also considered international students.
  • International students are not eligible for federal financial aid, but in some cases may be eligible to apply for Johns Hopkins University financial assistance.

Undergraduate Students

  • Johns Hopkins University offers need-based scholarships to undergraduate international students. Approximately 10% of the incoming international freshmen receive need-based scholarships.
  • The average scholarship is $25,000, but individual amounts can be more or less depending on the financial need of the student. Since funds are limited, Johns Hopkins University takes need for financial aid into consideration when making the Admissions decision.
  • If an applicant applies for financial aid and is determined to have financial need, Johns Hopkins University will offer admission to that student only if funds are available to meet that student’s financial need.
