Scholarships for International Students

Academic Merit Scholarships

All international first-year applicants are automatically considered to receive academic merit scholarships of up to $25,000 per year of undergraduate study. These awards are based on a combination of academic achievement (GPA) and/or SAT or ACT scores, if provided.

USF currently does not offer any full-tuition scholarships to admitted students. All scholarship amounts are included as part of your admission decision, but we need a complete application, including the Certification of Finances and a bank statement, in order for your application to be reviewed.
