Financial Aid | International Student Scholarships

 

Fordham University commits significant funds to support scholarships. Awards are made on a competitive basis taking into consideration academic and performance profiles, leadership, and other factors.

These four-year scholarships may be received for up to eight semesters (fall and spring only). The first five scholarships below are the most competitive. They are awarded to our top applicants upon admission.

Presidential Scholarship

The Presidential Scholarship is awarded to entering traditional first-year students who generally rank in the top 1 to 2 percent in their high school class. The Presidential Scholarship is awarded to the top 20 admitted students each year. 

The scholarship is awarded on the basis of excellent academic achievement in high school, test scores and personal characteristics.

This scholarship augments gift aid from all sources to cover the full tuition cost each year (fees not included) for courses taken as a traditional undergraduate student at Fordham. The scholarship will be adjusted for only one half of other non-tuition-specific outside resources or scholarships. The remaining half may be used for additional educational expenses.

Presidential awards also cover the average cost of a double room or actual charges, whichever is less (excluding meal plans and fees), if the student lives on campus.

To renew the award, students must maintain full-time status, satisfactory academic progress, a 3.0 cumulative GPA, and compliance with the University's policies and Code of Conduct.
