"I am grateful to get help from WSU during my hard time. I would like to thank everyone who is part of this organization."


Imagine: You've left a stable home country to attend WSU. Suddenly, conflict breaks out. Sanctions freeze your bank account. You are worried about your family’s safety 6,000 miles away. You cannot legally work over 20 hours a week. Still, you must focus on passing your classes, managing your responsibilities, and paying your bills. 

Going home may not be an option, and if you do, your access to future studies at WSU, or anywhere else, could be in doubt.

With recent conflicts in Ukraine, Syria, Libya, and Myanmar, this situation is very real for some Washington State University students. With limited resources available to international students, flexible support through the Office of International Programs may be the only option some WSU students have during these times of urgent need.

The International Student Aid Fund is a lifeline for international students who, through no faults of their own, cannot meet basic needs or require additional financial support to maintain progress toward their degrees.

International students, who bring diverse talents, aptitudes, and perspectives, are among WSU’s best and brightest and enrich the WSU community. They are the problem solvers of tomorrow. We can help them get there, and your donation will make a difference.
