Monmouth College has had a longtime commitment to welcoming international students, but it is now stepping that up with the introduction of two generous scholarships.

“For the past several years, international students have paid a set rate to attend Monmouth College, regardless of their academic profiles,” explained vice president of enrollment management Omar Correa. “We are pleased to provide this new financial assistance, especially to very talented international students who know they want to attend college in the U.S. but have concerns about the cost.”

International Distinguished Young Leaders Scholarships are designated for students with outstanding potential as scholars and leaders. The highly competitive scholarships of up to $25,000 will be offered to up to five students each year. All admitted international students will automatically be considered for these scholarships, which are renewable for three additional years of study with the maintenance of a 3.5 GPA or above.

International Merit Scholarships will be awarded to admitted international applicants who demonstrate strong scholastic abilities and outstanding potential. Award amounts will vary, with a maximum of $17,000, and may be renewed for three additional years of study. An applicant does not need to demonstrate financial need to be eligible for the scholarship.

No additional applications, forms or essays are required for either scholarship, which the college will begin awarding to next fall’s incoming class.
