International Students

International student who have been admitted to PLU and enroll full-time are eligible for scholarships and grants funded by the university. Awards are intended to assist students in meeting the cost of the university’s tuition for the year.

Awards made to students admitted into the undergraduate degree program can have their awards renewed for up to three additional years (if entering as a first year student, two additional years if entering as a transfer student), provided satisfactory academic progress toward a degree is maintained each semester. There is no separate scholarship application – awards are made on the strength of the student’s application for admission to the university. Notice of a scholarship offer is made to the student via email from the Admission Office at the time the student is accepted for admission.
