  • Did you know that over 63% of international students primarily covered their education with their own money, or with the support of their parents? This is important for French students as they are one of the top 20 senders of students to the US, and the average out of state tuition is $21,706 per year.

    Last year, there were 8,302 French students studying in the USA and for many there were few places to look for financial aid. If you are a French student in the US, once you have maximized your school’s financial aid and sought out external awards, there still may be a gap. International student loans are available for French students studying in the USA, and it is a good way to borrow money to cover your expenses.
