Florida Atlantic University introduces scholarships for undergraduate Indian students in collaboration with Study Group
Hyderabad: Florida Atlantic University scholarships for international undergraduate students are available for all students from India (F-1 and J-1 degree-seeking applicants), up to four years or eight semesters, including those recruited by leading international education provider Study Group.
Florida Atlantic University (FAU) is offering scholarships for incoming Spring and Fall terms to support international students to study at FAU. Students from India who enrolled through leading international education provider Study Group are also eligible to apply. The scholarships provide a significant reduction in course fees for students who wish to pursue their higher education studies at FAU in the US as the scholarship program covers four or eight semesters for a transfer student or student on a scholar visa.
How students can be considered for the President’s International Student Scholarship at FAU
To be considered for a scholarship, applicants must apply and be accepted as degree-seeking students and obtain a high school diploma or its equivalent before the first day of class. The total amount of a scholarship is up to $6,000 per year (First-year applicants: maximum $24,000 total and for transfer applicants: $12,000 maximum).
Minimum requirements for scholarship consideration include:
Students must have a completed application on file by May 1
Minimum GPA equivalent: minimum 3.5 on the 4.0 U.S. grading scale
Submission of SAT or ACT score (no minimum score required, but test scores may be used in selecting application recipients)
Scholarship selections are communicated in about four weeks after all application materials have been received, and the application is considered complete by the university. An applicant may be offered admission to a term other than the one indicated on the application due to the competitiveness of the applicant pool.
For undergraduate admissions, other international scholarships available for Indian students are:
The Depan International Scholarship for $8000: A freshman student on a student or scholar visa will get $2,000 per year for eight semesters.
