International students who are recruited by and apply directly to the university as degree-seeking undergraduate students, and who will hold a temporary visa/status in the USA will be considered for International Academic Excellence Scholarships (AES-INTL). They are generally offered on the basis of a student’s academic merit; they vary according to a student’s earned high school grades (minimum 3.25 out of 4), availability of funding, underrepresented country designation, and English proficiency scores.
Scholarships are generally offered for enrollment starting with a fall term, are non-deferrable and non-transferable, though are renewable, provided academic progression and grade requirements are met, and lawful presence in the USA is maintained. Students may be awarded the scholarship for a total of 4 academic years towards a first bachelor’s degree only.
International students who are externally funded (e.g. by their government) may not qualify for these scholarships.
Students who apply through OMI are not eligible for International Academic Excellence scholarships
Scholarships range from $23,454- to $3,900-, or approx. 95% to 15% of undergraduate tuition (= the cost of base and non-resident tuition); or from 55% to 9% of the total cost of study (= the cost of tuition, housing, meals, books, health insurance, etc.)
At the time of applying for an undergraduate degree at the UM, the student will automatically be considered for the scholarship.
