GENEROUS SCHOLARSHIPS FOR AN AFFORDABLE EDUCATION

You've worked hard, and we want to reward you for your achievements. Recognizing the academic merits and financial need of our international students, we offer substantial scholarships to help make a Point Park education affordable.

Our privately funded merit scholarships are available to international students at all levels — undergraduate, transfer and graduate. If you are a student from a non-English education country, you are still eligible for scholarship money, based on your academic success and a satisfactory TOEFL/IELTS score.

Some of our undergraduate academic merit scholarships may cover more than 50 percent of the cost of tuition. Merit aid is to be used to offset the cost of tuition and fees ONLY. Below are the scholarships available to international students along with their respective requirements.
