Hendrix College does not award need-based financial assistance to non-US
citizen international students.
International students are eligible, through the Hendrix College work study program, to work on campus. The positions are based on availability. In figuring money earned through work study into a student’s available financial resources, please keep in mind that Hendrix College provides a substantial amount of support to international students. Adjusting to life in the United States and on campus also factor into determining how many hours a student feels comfortable working.
The rigors of the academics at Hendrix College, among other factors, influence the number of hours a student is able to work; hence, students tend to earn different amounts of money during their time at Hendrix College.
International students work in different departments on campus where the diversity of experiences and energy they bring are greatly appreciated and celebrated. Members of faculty’s offices, the cafeteria (especially the Burrow), and the science labs are some of the most popular places to work.
