Undergraduate International Admission

Scholarships for Undergraduate International Students

The University of Toledo offers two admission scholarships to qualified international students. You will be considered for all of these awards by submitting a completed application for admission. No additional application for scholarship is required. A completed admission application includes the application for admission, all official academic transcripts, the official letter from your sponsor’s bank verifying sufficient funding, and your international English language proficiency test scores, if taken. The International Student Scholarship and Sister Cities Award may not be combined.

Students who apply directly to the American Language Institute (ALI) at The University of Toledo and students who meet the academic requirement but are referred to the ALI will be eligible for this award upon the successful completion of the ALI program. This scholarship will not be applied to any fees associated with the ALI.
