The LSA Scholarships Office awards a small number of International Student Scholarships each year to incoming LSA students. These awards are renewable for four years of study and recipients are selected based on information provided through their scholarship application and their undergraduate admissions application.
International students admitted to the College of LSA should complete the International Student Scholarship application as soon as possible to ensure they are considered for these limited opportunities. Read on to learn more about our International Student Scholarships and the application process for incoming international students.
What does the scholarship cover?
For qualified LSA students, the International Student Scholarship covers educational expenses such as tuition, room and board, and textbooks.
Amounts and Duration
Award amounts can go up to 15,000 USD. All International Student Scholarships are renewable for four years of undergraduate study, provided students maintain eligibility by completing their requirements each academic year.
The International Student Scholarship Application for the 2023-24 academic year is closed as of April 15. All awarding/reviewing has been completed.
Please note: 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 undergraduate admitted to a degree program in the College of LSA. Students will be considered even if they haven't enrolled yet.
- Must NOT be a U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident.

- Must write a thank you letter to the donor of their scholarship, if applicable.*
- Must attend the Scholarship Orientation that occurs during their first fall semester.**
