Scholarships & financial aid opportunities for international students
Trustee International Scholarships
Two merit-based scholarship awards covering total direct cost of four year attendance, including tuition, fees, and on-campus room and board are offered. Trustee scholarship awards are based on character, leadership and academic accomplishment as documented within the admissions application. Awards are renewable up to eight semesters and require satisfactory academic progress. All international students with a complete admissions application on record by February 15, 2017 will be reviewed for the Trustee Scholarship Awards.
Presidential International Scholarships
Merit-based scholarships ranging up to $25,000 per year are offered. All Presidential Scholarships are renewable up to eight semesters and require satisfactory academic progress. Presidential scholarships are awarded based on the overall strength of an applicant's record as documented within the admissions application. Applicants whose families demonstrate the ability to cover cost unmet by Wabash financial assistance will be given additional consideration. Priority is given to students with a complete admissions file on record by February 1, 2017.
Need-Based Financial Aid
Students must provide complete financial information (i.e., savings, investments, salaries, etc.) so that Wabash can best assess the student's financial need. A typical need-based package may consist of a combination of campus employment and a very limited number of grants in addition to any need-based scholarships that may be awarded. Travel expenses and summer expenses will not be covered by an aid award. In order to be considered for admission and financial assistance, all applicants must be able to document the ability to provide for expenses not covered by even our best awards.
