The term, “need-aware” refers to an admissions process in which a candidate's financial need is evaluated as one of many factors considered.

At Dartmouth, when the Admissions Committee is reviewing the candidacies of international students, the selection process is “need-aware”.

Dartmouth grants significant scholarship aid to international students, but it is important to note that international applicants must apply for and demonstrate need for financial aid at the time of application to Dartmouth; no new request for aid can be granted at any time after an admission offer is made.
