International Student Scholarships

At Concord University we base our scholarship decisions on a student’s academic ability and SAT or ACT test score. Criteria for or 2015-2016 scholarships are listed below. All applicants are reviewed for academic scholarship during the admission process.

All students seeking to be considered as a candidate for an international scholarship must submit a completed application for admission by November 1st (Spring) or March 15th (Fall). Limited amount of scholarships are available, and Concord University reserves the right to close the scholarship window earlier if funds have been claimed.
