Funding and Financial Aid

CRSMT is a small private school. So, many students get creative since US Federal Financial Aid and traditional programs do not apply to international programs.

Some options that our students have utilized:

Crowdfunding online- Have you heard of websites like FundMyTravel, GoFundMe, or Kickstarter? These tools leverage your online community network to raise money to fund a specific experience.

Personal Loans- Many students go a more formal route and get personal loans. Your local bank or credit union is a great place to start. Other banks that provide personal loans with credit score requirements ranging from poor-excellent are:
