International Student Scholarship
The International Student Scholarship was established by the Board of Trustees to assist students from other countries to attend EIU. Awards are competitive and designed to promote cultural exchange and diversity. Awards may be granted on the basis of one or both of the following factors: financial need and academic excellence. The scholarship pays partial tuition for minimum full-time enrollment in EIU courses. Fees, field trips, continuing education delivery charges, travel, living expenses, and other personal expenses are not covered.
Note: Although prospective undergraduate students are welcome to apply for the International Student Scholarship, they are not eligible to receive it if they are awarded the Undergraduate International Excellence Award.
Criteria to be eligible for the scholarship are as follows:
A minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.75 (undergraduate), 3.0 (graduate), as converted to the EIU grading scale.
Full academic admission to a degree program
Proof of funding for living expenses and fees (see financial affidavit form at http://www.eiu.edu/~interntl/)
