International Scholarships

West Virginia University strives to provide its students with an inclusive educational experience. We are pleased to offer incoming, freshmen international students the opportunity to receive academic scholarships.

Current scholarship information and values pertain to incoming freshmen for fall 2021 and is not retroactive to previous classes or currently enrolled students. Students entering WVU prior to the fall 2021 semester may have been offered different scholarships and/or amounts. Future students may also have different criteria or values.

For consideration, students must be admitted to certain campuses by the deadlines listed for each scholarship. Please review all information carefully.
