Scholarships for International Students

Applying for Scholarships

There is no additional application required to apply for an international scholarship. By submitting the international application, undergraduate and transfer students are automatically considered for a scholarship. Students sponsored by their government will not be considered for scholarships.

Additional need-based financial aid may be available for eligible candidates. Please contact internationalaffairs@fontbonne.edu for more information.
