Scholarships & Aid Programs for International Students

The following scholarships programs are available for International students in need of tuition assistance at Weber State University beginning fall semester 2018.

WSU Scholarships

Scholarships are awarded based on merit. Available for new freshmen, transfer students and continuing students, scholarships are awarded based on criteria such as:

  • Academic performance
  • Activities or interests
  • Community service
  • International status
  • Academic departments

Unlike student loans, scholarships do not need to be repaid. Depending on the award, they may or may not be renewable.

Students entering Weber State after high school graduation are automatically considered for academic scholarships based on their admissions application. Students interested in activity-based scholarships must apply for those separately. Students entering college more than one year after high school graduation are not automatically considered for academic scholarships and must apply annually. These students are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.

Current students with current scholarships, please contact the International Student & Scholar Center at 801-626-6853 or issc@weber.edu.
