CFIS Grants Administration

Community Friends of International Students offers grants to support international students having financial need

  • to acquire computers and related equipment and/or software needed to complete their academic mission at one of the Claremont Colleges or Universities, and
  • to explore the cultural riches of Southern California, either on individual trips or by joining an outing sponsored by International Place.

To qualify for a grant, create an account or login, then fill out an application form. Once you have completed the application, you can print out a form to take to the financial aid office of your home institution to verify your financial need and that funds for the designated purpose are unavailable from your home institution. The application will then be reviewed by the CFIS Grant Committee, who will decide on awards.
