Sarah Lawrence students who normally receive aid may apply their awards to the programs abroad. Sarah Lawrence financial aid is available to guest students attending Sarah Lawrence in Paris, but guest students should also explore several potential sources of aid:
- loans available from local banks, state agencies, or through the Perkins Loan Program;
- in most cases,the guest students’ home institutions may apply an ongoing financial aid award to a program abroad;
- many institutions allow students full access to their current financial aid package. The Office of Financial Aid at your home institution can provide information about grants, loans and procedures for applying.
