Study California Scholarship
Each fall, Study California awards a scholarship to five international students planning to continue at a Study California member institution. Scholarship recipients will be chosen on the basis of academic ability, financial need, and leadership qualities. The scholarship award is $1,000 per student recipient, and is not renewable.
Applications open October 1-30 for the current year’s scholarship awards. Scholarship winners are announced by December 6. To apply, see the instructions below.
Students who have not yet been awarded the Study California Scholarship are eligible to apply, and a student may receive the Scholarship only once. Students may apply for the scholarship each year they are an active student at a Study California member institution.
The award will be in the form of a check made payable to the student and is intended to be used for educational purposes (tuition, fees, books, supplies).
Scholarship recipients are notified by December 6, and awards will be disbursed shortly afterward after verification of full-time enrollment.
- Applications open October 1 – 30.
- Open to international students studying on a F1 student visa intending to continue full-time in a degree-seeking program (undergraduate or graduate) at a Study California member institution.
- Scholarship applicants must have a minimum cumulative/overall GPA of 3.0 in their most recent academic program. Visit this GPA calculator to confirm.
