Scholarships for International Students

International student scholarships are valued between $2,000 and 60% of tuition. They are determined by assessing a students’ potential for success at Saint Michael’s College. To apply for a merit based scholarship, simply indicate this on the application.

The items below help determine your scholarship’s amount.

1) High School Transcripts

We will want to see that you are capable of academic work. We are also interested in how well you did in secondary school compared with your peers. If you have received a poor grade in secondary school, this is not necessarily a bad thing, though we will look for signs of hard work and improvement.

2) Achievements

Do you have any particular athletic or musical achievements? What about other activities such as clubs? Did you play a leadership role inside or outside of school? There is place in the application to indicate these things. You may also talk about them in your writing sample.

3) Writing Sample

We’d like to know if you’re a good writer. We also encourage you to use the writing sample for sharing some important information about yourself, your interests, and your experiences.

4) Test Scores

SAT scores are not required from international students for admission to Saint Michael’s College. But, if you choose to provide them, we will take them into account.

Deadlines

Don’t be late. We recommend that all students who wish to be considered for a scholarship to apply no later than:

  • June 7 for the fall semester, and
  • November 7 for the spring semester.

Late applications will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

The Saint Michael’s College Book Award for Academic Achievement and Social Conscience is awarded each year to high school juniors throughout the United States as well as internationally. The Book Award recognizes students’ academic success and exemplary community service involvement.

These values began with our founding order, the Society of Saint Edmund, and continue to be a guiding principle for our students.
