International Student Scholarships

A limited number of tuition scholarships are available to students studying at Gordon-Conwell’s Hamilton campus on an F-1 visa. Only those students who are committed to returning to their native country to provide Christian leadership will be eligible for consideration. The scholarship is renewable for the duration of the degree program for those who maintain satisfactory academic performance.

Scholarships are awarded to students only at the beginning of their program of studies at Gordon-Conwell. If a student enrolls without an International Student Scholarship, he/she will not be eligible to apply for the scholarship at a later date.

International applicants who wish to be considered for a tuition scholarship should complete first the admissions application process and will then be able to submit a scholarship application form.  Both of these must be received by December 5 before you plan to begin studies in the Fall semester.
