Am I eligible to apply?
If you will have completed your country’s pre-university education (equivalent to U.S. 12th Grade) before arriving on-campus for the fall semester, or if any of the following apply to you, you are eligible to apply to the scholarship program as a first-year applicant:
- You are completing an internationally-recognized equivalent, such as the IB Diploma; or
- You are applying from countries with school leaving qualifications based on the British educational model, and will have completed the A-level equivalent (neither O-levels nor (I)GCSE results will be sufficient for admission); or
- You are currently enrolled in a foundation year program outside of the United States; or
- Your highest degree earned by the time you plan to apply for the scholarship program is either a certificate or diploma.
Transfer applicants must first meet the high school requirements above. You are then eligible to apply as a transfer student if one of the following applies to you:
- You are currently or have been enrolled as a degree-seeking* student at a college or university in the U.S. that is regionally accredited;
- You are currently or have been enrolled as a degree-seeking student at a college or university outside the U.S. that is nationally recognized by the country's primary accrediting council/agency; or
- You are currently or have been enrolled in a non-degree seeking program in the U.S. and will have completed 24 semester credits or more by the time you plan to enroll.
*A non-degree seeking student, sometimes referred to outside of the United States as a non- award/non-study student or auditor, refers to a student who is taking a course at a host university, but does not have the right to earn a degree at the host university. But credits could be earned which are transferrable.
