Financial Aid and Scholarships

Financial aid is available to students who have applied and been accepted into a program. Financial assistance for graduate students is limited. Because financial assistance from the U.S. government is not available to international students, other funding is available through Fresno Pacific University. 

Scholarships available to graduate students:

  • Church Match (up to $1,000 per year)
  • Performance scholarships (music, athletic)
  • Graduate Grant ($500)
  • Other ($500 - $1,500)

Fresno Pacific University values the diversity that international students bring to our campus. Because we understand that funding your education can be challenging, we will do everything we can to make it possible for you to attend.

The International Programs and Services Office will work together with you and the Financial Student Services Office to create your own personal scholarship package. Scholarship packages are specially designed for each individual student according to the information provided on the application and the Affidavit of Support. These packages may be comprised of one or several different awards based on merit and need. Scholarships are not guaranteed!!


Many international students find sponsors through their own personal contacts and/or various organizations to help fund their tuition and living expenses. We encourage you to look for financial sources such as these.
