Earning a college degree can be a challenging task for any student but international students face a unique set of obstacles in the world of academics.
There are currently more than 1 million international students who are enrolled in US schools, making up 5.5% of total US students. However, this sector of students is often left out when it comes to receiving financial aid, making it challenging to afford tuition and other expenses.
This scholarship seeks to support international students attending school in the United States so they can overcome obstacles and fund their degrees.
Any international high school senior, undergraduate, or graduate student who is attending school in the US may apply for this scholarship, including those who aren’t citizens and those who are naturalized in the US with citizenship.

The winner will be publicly announced on Nov 30, 2022. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
