Scholarships for International Students

Some students may be eligible to apply for merit-based scholarships to attend NOVA. Many of the scholarships offered have a residency requirement that you may not meet until after you have lived in the U.S. for the required time. Other scholarships require that you are a U.S. citizen. 

Many of the schools we have Guaranteed Admissions Agreements with offer scholarships for students transferring out of NOVA after having completed an associate’s degree. Please read the agreement to find out if you are eligible to apply.

You may also inquire with the Institute of International Education (IIE) or the government in your home country if there are any scholarships available to students who study abroad.

Need-based financial aid is not available to international students.
