Scholarship Programs for Entering US Citizens or Permanent Residents

The Office of Financial Aid, in accordance with guidelines set by the school’s Financial Aid Committee, makes the selection of award recipients. Award determinations are based upon academic excellence, the degree of the family’s financial need and the availability of funds from SGU, as well as each scholarship program’s specified criteria. A student’s ability to finance his/her education beyond the extent of the financial aid award is also an important selection criterion. Applicants should be aware that the funding is limited, and the quality of the applicants is very competitive. Unfortunately, awards cannot be made to every deserving student.
Applications will be reviewed and award determinations made in a timely manner.
