For International Students

College of Liberal Arts

Drew University offers merit-based scholarships to international students who are directly admitted to Drew’s Bachelor of Arts degree programs. These scholarships do not require any special application form. Students are automatically considered for a scholarship at the point of admission based on the strength of their academic record. International students are also eligible to apply for specialized merit awards rewarding excellence in the arts, civic engagement or the sciences. These scholarships require a separate application.

International students admitted through programs offered by INTO New York at Drew are not eligible for these Drew merit awards.

Graduate and Theological Schools

International students are considered equally for merit-based scholarships. However, international students are not eligible to receive financial aid under any U.S. Federal program.

Merit awards are offered in various increments and are based on strength of candidacy. Applicants must demonstrate their ability to pay for costs in excess of their merit scholarship. Remember: Financial assistance is limited for international students and will not cover the entire cost of attendance at Drew.
