International Student Scholarships

At Concord University we base our scholarship decisions on a student’s academic ability and a test score. Students that are not native English speakers may qualify for an academic scholarship based on their grades and TOEFL or IELTS scores. Whereas a student who is a native English Speaker will qualify for scholarships based on their grades and an SAT or ACT score. To see whether or not you qualify you should submit an application for admission and submit all required documents and test scores.

Our Fall 2014 scholarship amounts have not yet been announced. They will range in amount and be awarded based on a student’s academic ability. We will also host a generous scholarship contest that will award selected students based on their grades, test scores and commitment to leadership or community service. Please continue to visit this site to learn more about scholarship opportunities.

It may also be beneficial for you to examine third party scholarships. I would recommend that you visit internationalscholarships.com to learn about additional opportunities. It will also benefit you to contact your country's EducationUSA center as the center advisors may be able to help you find additional opportunities. Educationusa.com
