The faculty and staff at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown are proud to recognize the academic achievements and personal accomplishments of international students. It is our desire to also consider the financial constraints that foreign students face when studying in the United States. That is why we offer a variety of funding options. Below is a list of scholarships that our institution extends to qualified candidates. Most scholarships are renewable for students who maintain a 3.0 grade point average or higher.
International Student and Housing Incentive Scholarships
The International Student and Housing Incentive Scholarships are awarded to non-immigrant students in recognition of solid academic performance and to alleviate the financial demands of an international education. The scholarships can be renewed on an annual basis for a total of four years.
President's and Leadership Scholarships
The President's Scholars Program is a merit-based academic enrichment program designed to promote scholarships throughout the college experience.
The Leadership Program is a merit-based scholarship program for academically excellent students who have displayed leadership abilities in secondary school and show promise of continuing their leadership traits in college.
Application and Award Process
All applicants who are admitted to Pitt-Johnstown are automatically reviewed for scholarship eligibility. Early application for admission is encouraged. No additional paperwork is necessary. The award process is based on the number of eligible applicants and the amount of available scholarship funds.
