International Student Scholarship

The University of Portland awards several international student scholarships to incoming and current international students. Scholarship awards to new international students are based on academic merit. Applicants will be considered for a range of award amounts based on their cumulative incoming GPA as converted by a staff member from the International Student Services office or other acceptable credential evaluation services.

International Student Scholarship Policy

  • Eligible applicants must meet the following criteria:
    • Applicants must be officially accepted to the University.
    • Citizen and resident of country/countries other than the United States residing in the US or intending to attend the University in legal nonimmigrant status (F-1, J-1, H-4, etc).
  • Applicants meeting the eligibility criteria will be notified of their scholarship award within thirty days of being fully admitted to the University of Portland.*
  • Scholarships are continuous through the duration of the recipient's program at University of Portland.
  • Award amounts are based on an academic year, the total award amount will be split evenly between the Fall and Spring semesters (example: a student receiving a yearly award of $4,000 will receive $2,000 towards the Fall semester and $2,000 towards the Spring semester). Scholarships are not awarded during the summer semester.
  • Recipients of this award must maintain satisfactory academic progress as determined by the office of International Student Services and the Financial Aid Office. A recipient must maintain a minimum 2.0 (undergraduates) or 3.0 (graduates) grade point average and carry a full course load each semester to keep their award.
  • Recipients who drop below a full course load with permission from the International Office and carry at least a half course load will have their scholarship prorated in accordance with their course enrollment. Students who carry less than a half course load are not eligible to receive their scholarship award.
  • Applicants whose tuition and fees are wholly sponsored by the University, a third party, or are participating in short-term tuition exchange programs are ineligible for the scholarship.

*Students who are not awarded an International Student Scholarship award at the time of admission may request to be reconsidered for the award after completing one academic year at University of Portland. Currently matriculated students should contact the International Student Services office for more information regarding initial awards.
