The International Center has limited resources for international students who need financial assistance to meet short-term expenses. Students are also encouraged to speak with their schools and academic departments regarding any school-based financial aid. Resources include:

  • The Oliver Chapman Fund that provides small cash grants for international undergraduate students on financial aid with unexpected expenses
  • The Friends of the International Center Fund that provides small cash grants for international students experiencing unexpected financial hardship and who are not eligible for Chapman Funding
  • The Laila Fund which provides short-term loans for international students at any Tufts campus
  • Off-campus economic hardship employment options based on your visa and immigration status.

For more information, contact the International Center.
