KATHMANDU: Florida Atlantic University (FAU) is offering scholarships for incoming spring and fall terms to support international students. Students from Nepal who enrolled at FAU through Study Group, a leading international education provider, are also eligible to apply for the scholarship.

The scholarships provide a significant reduction in course fees for students who wish to pursue their higher education studies at FAU in the US. The programme covers four or eight semesters for a transfer student or student on a scholar visa.

How students can be considered for the President’s International Student Scholarship at FAU

To be considered for a scholarship, applicants must apply and be accepted as degree-seeking students and obtain a high school diploma or its equivalent before the first day of class. The total amount of a scholarship is up to $6,000 per year (First-year applicants: maximum $24,000 total and for transfer applicants: $12,000 maximum).

Minimum requirements for consideration

  • Students must submit their application on file by May 1
  • Minimum GPA equivalent: minimum 3.5 on the 4.0 US grading scale
  • Submission of SAT or ACT score (no minimum score required, but test scores may be used in selecting application recipients)

Scholarship selections are communicated in about four weeks after all application materials are received, and the application is considered complete by the university. An applicant may be admitted to a term other than the one indicated on the application due to the competitiveness of the applicant pool.
