Scholarships for International Students

 Illinois Wesleyan is able to award a small number of merit and need-based scholarships 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 $10,000 to $25,000 per year and are renewable for up to four years. In some instances, additional help is provided through student loans and campus employment.

President’s International Student Scholarships:

This is a  full-tuition scholarship awarded each year to two highly qualified international students in assessing their talents, interests and academic achievements. The President's scholarship is renewable for up to four years of study at Illinois Wesleyan University.

Need- based Scholarships:

Submit the CSS PROFILE to be considered for the need-based financial aid considered. The PROFILE provides a detailed analysis of an applicant's financial resources. Using this information, we can be “need sensitive” when considering ways to further assist our international students with Illinois Wesleyan University funded scholarships, loans and campus-employment opportunities.

The preferred deadline to submit the CSS PROFILE is April 1.
