Founded in the year 1890, the University of Chicago is a private research university in Chicago, Illinois. It holds top positions in various national and international rankings. The university is made of the undergraduate college as well as various graduate programs and interdisciplinary committees organized into five academic research divisions.
University of Chicago has set aside $35 million for international financial aid, and it has strengthened the University’s commitment to enrolling a diverse and talented student body from around the world. The financial aid awards are based on an estimate of the full costs of enrolling at the University of Chicago, including tuition, housing, health insurance, a meal plan, and estimates for additional costs like books and personal expenses.
KINDLY NOTE :
International students are eligible for financial aid only if they apply for funding during the admissions process, and will not be eligible for financial aid after receiving their admissions decision or during their four years in the College. If you think you will need financial aid at any point during your four years at UChicago, you should apply for financial aid when you apply for admission.
