American University Undergraduate Scholarships
Merit Awards for International 1st-Year Students
For AU merit scholarships, there is no special application form or procedure necessary.
Only for the AU Emerging Global Leader Scholarship is a separate application necessary.
International students who meet the requirements will get partial scholarships from American University.
Students receive awards for a variety of qualities, including leadership, volunteerism, great academic success, and superior English communication abilities.
The amount of scholarships available is limited, and merit award consideration is quite competitive.
At American University, all merit prizes are given upon acceptance rather than following enrollment.
Based on continuous progress in the classroom, these funds are renewable for the full four years of study.
Graduation Merit Awards may be available to exceptional international master’s and doctorate students through their departments. Each year, these grants provide waivers for up to twelve credits of tuition. There may also be stipends offered. For more information, applicants should speak with the departments directly.
How to Apply
However, while applying to a graduate program, any applicant for graduate school may specify whether they are interested in receiving merit assistance.
Time to Apply
For autumn applicants, the priority deadline for university-wide merit awards is February 1. Although applicants are advised to submit their applications before deadline, several academic departments continue to review merit award applicants until late Spring.
