International Student Scholarships

Southern Utah University offers dedicated scholarships specifically for international students.  Any student who completes an admissions application by the scholarship deadline will automatically be considered for a scholarship.

Fall Semester Deadlines

March 1: Priority Scholarship Deadline for International Students

May 1: Final Scholarship Deadline for International Students

Spring Semester Deadline

October 1: Final Scholarship Deadline for International Students for Spring Semester

Scholarship types

  • International Founders’ Scholarships: 4-Year $8,500 Scholarships
  • International Deans' Scholarships: 4-Year $6,000 Scholarships
  • International Centurium Scholarships: 4-Year $3,000 Scholarships

The SUU International Student Scholarship Committee considers a number of factors when awarding scholarships including academic merit (GPA), geographic distribution, and financial need. Awardees typically have a 3.0 GPA. International Student Scholarships cannot be combined with other substantial SUU tuition scholarships. Each scholarship requires a 3.0 SUU GPA to maintain. International Student Scholarships can be awarded to students interested in entering SUU’s ESL program but the scholarship will not be paid until the student begins full time undergraduate or graduate studies.

How to Apply

Priority consideration is given to applicants that apply by March 1 for fall semester and October 1 for spring semester.  There is not a separate application and all applicants are automatically considered. 

Pre-Authorized Scholarships

In order to receive a pre-authorized scholarship, you can submit the following items to intladm@suu.edu anytime:

  1. Appropriate International Student Application for Admission (email address mandatory)
  2. Application Fee
  3. Copy of Passport
  4. Copy of Official Transcripts

If you qualify, this would generate a pre-authorized scholarship and allow you to factor the scholarship award into your financial statement.
