Institutional Scholarships

Institutional scholarships are available for international undergraduate students. For more information, please review the list of APU scholarships. Most scholarships are stackable, which means students can receive more than one APU scholarship, if qualified.

Academic Merit Scholarships for Freshman and Transfer International Students

Academic scholarships are based on a combination of GPA and test scores at the time of admittance for freshman international students. Freshmen who do not qualify for Trustees', President's, Dean's, Director's, or Founder's Scholarships may still be considered for academic merit scholarships. International students without an SAT or ACT score will be considered for academic merit scholarships.
