Scholarships & Financial Aid

Illinois Wesleyan is able to award merit scholarships and need-based financial aid for international students in each first-year entering class. Students who are not U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents are considered international students.

Merit-Based Scholarships:

These are offered to qualified international applicants with outstanding academic achievement and test scores on the required entrance exams. These awards range from $16,000 to $30,000 per year and are renewable for up to four years. Students who complete the admissions application are automatically considered for scholarships.

President’s Scholarships:

Two full-tuition scholarships are awarded each year to highly qualified international students based on their talents, interests and academic achievements. The President’s scholarship is renewable for up to four years of study. Applications must be complete by Feb. 15 to be considered.

Need-Based Financial Aid:

Submit the CSS PROFILE to be considered for need-based financial aid. The PROFILE provides a detailed analysis of an applicant’s financial resources. In addition to merit scholarships, students may be eligible for IWU-funded scholarships, loans, and campus-employment opportunities.

The preferred deadline to submit the CSS PROFILE is January 1.Image of Emily Shankar ’16
