The graduate school is committed to recruiting and retaining a diverse student body that incorporates multiple perspectives, cultures, learning styles and ways of knowing. Awarded by individual departments, the scholarships are intended to further this goal by offering financial assistance to prospective and continuing students who need financial support to pursue their graduate education and who meet each scholarship’s eligibility requirements.
Scholarship awards and application processes vary per program. Program application materials and financial need as determined by the FAFSA may be used to select scholarship recipients unless otherwise noted. All students who apply for admission and file a FAFSA will be considered for the maximum loans and scholarships available. Timely completion of the program application and the FAFSA is strongly recommended.

The program provides stipends, language training and individualized professional placement in Asia for fifteen to eighteen young Americans each year. Placements can be made in the following countries or regions: Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, Mongolia, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.

Nominees should have a record of high achievement, outstanding leadership ability, and a clearly defined career interest with evidence of potential for professional accomplishment.
