#YouAreWelcomeHere Scholarship

#YouAreWelcomeHere Scholarship

As a Catholic, Marianist university, the University of Dayton was founded on the cornerstone of community. We are proud to welcome students from around the world — and in our inclusive learning environment, you’ll find a family spirit that nurtures and respects the unique gifts of each member of the campus community.

To celebrate and support our international scholars, the University of Dayton is now offering #YouAreWelcomeHere scholarships. These scholarships are offered in partnership with the #YouAreWelcomeHere social media campaign  that encourages international students to study in the United States.

  • Two scholarships will be awarded.
  • Each scholarship covers at least half of the recipient’s annual tuition and will be awarded in place of any other admission scholarship.
  • The award is renewable each year.
  • All first year international students are encouraged to apply; whether you are currently attending a U.S. high school or attending high school in your home country.

To be considered for this scholarship, you must meet the following criteria:

  • You are a first-year international applicant to a participating college or university. An international applicant is an individual who holds citizenship in a country outside the United States and who does not also possess U.S. citizenship or permanent residency.
  • You demonstrate interest and personal initiative in activities involving intercultural learning and exchange.
  • You have completed the scholarship application and a 500-1,000 word essay or a 2-5 minute video describing your aspirations to conduct projects, research, employment or other experiences that will advance intercultural learning.  
  • In addition, you must apply to UD to be considered for the scholarship, and if you are admitted, you must confirm your enrollment to claim the scholarship.
  • All information must be submitted by May 1, 2020 for consideration.
