Gold Global Excellence Scholarship


All international freshmen and transfer students who are admitted are considered for a Global Excellence Scholarship. These scholarships cover either the full difference or half the difference between resident and non-resident tuition rates. Transfer students may receive Maroon awards of up to three years when entering the University in the Fall semester (transfer students entering in Spring semester will be considered for scholarship on a funds-available basis). Awards are competitive, based on academic merit—students selected for awards are among the best in their high school class and show a record of very strong academic preparation. There is no separate scholarship application required; students are considered based on an overall assessment of their on-time admission application.

Sponsor: University of Minnesota
