International MSW applicants may apply for scholarship (merit) aid from the School of Social Work, which can be utilized toward certifying that adequate funds are available*. For most scholarships, submission of the Financial Aid Application for Grant/Scholarships from School of Social Work Resources is sufficient.
International students also may be interested in applying to a special program. The special programs below require separate application. Application is typically done at the time of application to the MSW program. Click on the links for detailed information.
Some donor-funded scholarship applications are available for MSW students, with many of the applications available each August. Only MSW students, accepted and planning to begin the program in the fall or a continuing MSW student, are eligible to apply. Please review the School of Social Work scholarships that require separate application for details and deadlines.
International students that are currently enrolled in the MSW program are eligible to apply for the U-M International Center Emergency Fund, which provides financial support for unusual or unforeseen emergency expenses that greatly impact students' lives and their ability to progress at the university. More information about this fund, the application process, and the expenses that can be covered by it can be found on the International Center's website.

International students are not eligible for Michigan Scholarships and Opportunity Grants which are need-based awards.
* Please note that most merit scholarships cover only partial tuition amounts. All international MSW applicants need to submit an Affidavit of Financial Support with documentation showing the amount of funds available. Feel free to review details for MSW Program International Applicants.
