U.S. Financial Aid

American citizens and green card holders

American citizens and green card holders may be eligible to apply for various forms of financial assistance from the US Government (Student loans, Pell Grants, etc.). Most financial aid programs associated with American colleges and universities are restricted by U.S. law to citizens of the United States. Others are restricted for use only in the United States.

Applications for students who are applying for US Federal Aid at Webster Vienna are coordinated through our Senior Finance & Financial Aid Officer Ms. Carina Starlinger-Mazelle.
