Bowdoin values the contribution international students make to our community, and thus dedicates a limited number of financial aid awards to international students. For consideration of these resources, you must file the CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE. See “Deadlines” [link] for more details on form requirements and deadlines.
Exchange Rate Information
Your financial aid award from Bowdoin will reflect the prevailing exchange rate when awards are determined. The PROFILE form will request you to convert your currency to U.S. dollars. Bowdoin does not adjust financial aid awards during the year for fluctuations in exchange rates.Canadian applicants need to apply for available provincial scholarships and bursaries. Please check with your provincial departments of education to determine availability and eligibility. Like state scholarships in the U.S., provincial scholarships become part of your financial aid award and reduce eligibility for Bowdoin Grant funds.Unless you have dual citizenship, international applicants are not eligible for U.S. federal assistance. Therefore, families of international students do not need to submit the FAFSA.
