Loras College is one of the first colleges in the nation to now offer #YouAreWelcomeHere scholarships to undergraduate international students. The four individual renewable awards cover at least 50% of tuition annually to qualified students starting fall 2019.
Specifically, these scholarships support incoming international students who are committed to furthering the #YouAreWelcomeHere message through an intercultural exchange that bridges divides at their future campuses and beyond.
Applicants will answer a short essay question or present a multimedia project about their ideas for advancing intercultural learning and understanding on their future campuses. Other eligibility requirements include graduation from or attendance at a secondary school outside the U.S and a commitment to promoting intercultural learning and exchange.
Current first-year students at Loras come from Brazil, Colombia, Japan, and India covering three continents, including North America.
