Host University Scholarships

Many of our university partners generously offer ISA students the opportunity to apply for university-specific scholarships, and ISA encourages students read more about the scholarships available and consider a program at one of these distinguished universities abroad.

As the scholarships are offered by ISA's host universities, they differ in terms of award amount, deadline dates and refund method.

Eligibility requirements for all host university scholarships: Students must be enrolled at a U.S. or Canadian college or university, be accepted into an ISA academic year/semester/select summer programs, meet the university's minimum GPA requirement (unless otherwise noted), and complete and submit an ISA scholarship application. Students are not eligible to apply for scholarships in the 2nd term of an academic year program. Visit the Eligibility Requirements and Application for more information on eligibility, scholarship availability, and application instructions.
