Kent State Establishes Global Scholarship

A Kent State Education is now “A Whole Lot Closer” for Prospective International Students

Because it values diversity among its student population, Kent State University has created a new “Global Scholarship” to attract a greater number of high quality international students to its campuses. The Global Scholarship is immediately available to all incoming international undergraduate degree-seeking students who apply to Kent State beginning with fall 2018 semester. The Global Scholarship provides eligible students with $4,000 per year ($2,000 per semester), reducing the cost of a Kent State 4-year undergraduate degree by up to $16,000.

“Most international students dream of studying in the United States, but simply can’t afford it,” explains Marcello Fantoni, Associate Provost for Global Education. “With the help of our Global Scholarship, many students will now discover that an education at Kent State is closer than they think. We look forward to welcoming those additional students to our campus.”

For the Global Scholarship to automatically renew each year, students simply need to maintain continuous full-time enrollment and good academic standing.

The new Global Scholarship complements several other existing Kent State scholarships, which are available to international students. When combined, the scholarships have the potential of awarding an international student upwards of $32,000 towards a 4-year undergraduate degree.
