Higher Education for Returning Students

Immigrants from the Former Soviet Union are the most highly educated immigrants in the history of the United States. They include doctors, engineers, and professors who are often unable to work in their fields. Our Higher Education for Returning Students loans help these immigrants re-enter the middle class by enabling them to pay for degree programs to retrain for professional jobs.

Loans for degree programs are up to $7,500 per year (capped at $22,500 in total) and must be repaid within six years, with repayment deferred until completion of the degree.

Additional documents beyond those listed under How to Apply are required for this loan program. Please contact HFLS at 212-687-0188 or info@hfls.org to learn more.
