You’re ready to pursue your dream of higher education, but college is expensive, and many students find they have to borrow to pay for it. And if you come from a historically disenfranchised background, you might face particular challenges in paying for your college education.

Fortunately, there are many options for financial aid for ethnic minority students, including scholarships for graduate school. This guide outlines several resources for funding your college expenses.

In this guide:

Scholarships for minorities

Scholarships are one of the best sources of free money for college. There are options for everyone.

Minority grants for college
Grants are similar to scholarships in that you don’t have to repay them. Grants don’t usually have as many stringent requirements as scholarships do. And scholarships usually focus on academic achievement, while grants tend to focus less on grades and often more on financial need.

Student loans for immigrants and international students

When looking for student loans, international students and immigrants may have a hard time. Most student loan lenders require you to be a United States citizen or permanent resident, even for federal student loans. But there are still a couple of loan options for funding when you’re an immigrant.

One option is MPOWER Financing, a Washington, D.C.-based lender dedicated to helping global citizens get loans for college. You can get loans up to $50,000 with fixed interest rates to make your college dreams come true.
