International Student Scholarships

The LSA Scholarship committee has successfully awarded all International Student Scholarships for Fall 2024. All recipients have been notified by email. Our application and awarding process is now complete!

The College of LSA had an increase in the number of admitted international students from previous years. We were also able to increase the number of awarded students! In the process of selecting recipients, we honor the intentions of our generous donors who fund these scholarships and adhere to strict guidelines.  

We understand how this impacts your decision with regards to your educational journey and commend you on all your achievements! We look forward to welcoming you to campus this Fall.

As we strive to streamline communication, we kindly request that you refrain from sending emails regarding award status if you have not received notification of an award. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

International Student Scholarships

The LSA Scholarships Office awards a small number of International Student Scholarships each year to first-year incoming LSA students and international transfer students. These awards will be renewable for two or four years of study (depending on your admittance status) and recipients are selected based on information provided through their scholarship application and their undergraduate admissions application. 

For qualified LSA students, the International Student Scholarship helps to cover the cost of attendance. 

Award amounts can go up to 25,000 USD. All International Student Scholarships are renewable for two or four years (depending on admittance status) of undergraduate study, provided students maintain eligibility by completing their requirements each academic year.

The International Student Scholarship Application for the 2024-25 academic year is now open. 

Please note: Students must be accepted to the College of LSA to apply. Our office will begin evaluating applications on a "rolling basis" versus waiting to review all applications after the hard deadline. Early determinations will be made and while there are no guarantees to awarding, the odds for applicants to be awarded increases with an early submission. Students who wait until the final deadline to apply may be disappointed to find that all of the scholarships have already been awarded. We encourage you to apply early!

To qualify for an International Student Scholarship, a student:

  • Must be an incoming first-year or transfer undergraduate student admitted to a degree program in the College of LSA. Students will be considered even if they have not yet enrolled.
  • Must NOT be a U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident.
  • Must be enrolled (or intend to enroll) full-time (12 credit hours or more) each term.
