adielkaplan:

Reposting some old work. From the September 28th, 2012 edition of the Oberlin Review:


The Oberlin Center for Languages and Cultures held its inaugural reception last Friday, when organizers presented plans for an ambitious new database called ObieMAPS.

Anonymous asked: Hi. I am an undocumented high school senior and I will be applying to schools soon. Oberlin has been my dream college for a while, and I plan to apply through the Questbridge Scholarship Program because of the financial opportunity, but in case I don't win Questbridge, I was wondering how financial aid is like for "international" students ? (I put international in parentheses because I don't consider myself international since I've lived here over 16 years, but legally I am international.)

From the international students section of the financial aid website:

Oberlin provides grants, scholarships, loans, and on-campus employment to enable international students to meet all demonstrated financial need. More than 80 percent of our international students receive institutional financial aid, with the average aid package covering about three-quarters of the cost of attendance.

More on international student financial aid can be found here.

I highly recommend getting in touch with the office of financial aid if you have any additional questions (finaid[AT]oberlin.edu).
