International Undergraduate Merit Scholarships-FAQs
International students are not eligible for some types of financial aid including federally subsidized student loans, grants, and some scholarships. While the opportunities are limited, there are chances to qualify for merit scholarships, awards based on talent and ability rather than need.
A merit scholarship is a financial award that students receive based on their academic success in high school. Merit-based scholarships are not only limited to a student’s grades but also consider factors such as leadership roles, ACT and/or SAT scores, extracurricular activities, and school or community involvement.
