University of Minnesota Scholarships for Foreign Students

University-Wide Academic Scholarships
University of Minnesota academic scholarships are highly competitive. Admitted freshmen are considered for these scholarships based on an overall assessment of the application for freshman admission. Priority scholarship consideration is given to admitted students who complete the admission applications by the December 15 priority application deadline. No separate application is needed, though demonstration of financial need is required for certain academic scholarships. Recipients must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents, or be eligible for the Minnesota Dream Act. Please note: there are a limited number of scholarships that are available for international students.
Scholarship recipients are notified by the end of March of their senior year.
Scholarship decisions are based on a very careful, overall assessment of each admitted student’s academic preparation and performance, as well as the additional information provided in the admission application, based on the primary and secondary factors listed below. Although the strongest consideration in the decision is given to the primary factors, no single factor is the deciding factor in the decision.
Primary Factors
Coursework through high school graduation. (Scholarship recipients typically exceed the University’s subject requirements. See subject requirements)
  • Grade point average
  • Class rank (if available)
  • ACT or SAT scores
Secondary Factors
Individual circumstances such as those listed below are also considered as part of the overall assessment of each application and may factor into individual scholarship decisions.
  • Outstanding talent, achievement, or aptitude in a particular area
  • An exceptionally rigorous academic curriculum (enrollment in honors, AP, IB, or college-level courses)
  • Strong commitment to community service and leadership
  • Military service
  • Contribution to the cultural, gender, age, economic, racial, or geographic diversity of the student body
  • Evidence of having overcome social, economic, or physical barriers to educational achievement
  • First-generation college student
  • Significant responsibility in a family, community, job, or activity
  • Family employment or attendance at the University of Minnesota
  • Extenuating circumstances
