University of Minnesota Merit Based Awards

Global Excellence Scholarship

The University of Minnesota is in the process of selecting recipients for merit-based scholarships for 2014-15. All international freshmen and transfer students who are admitted are considered for a Global Excellence Scholarship.

For the 2013-14 academic year, the scholarships ranged from $3,125 to $6,250 per year for up to four years (total over four years $12,500-$25,000). Awards are competitive, based on academic merit—students selected for awards show a record of very strong academic preparation.

There is no separate scholarship application required; to be considered for an award, students must fill in an application for admission. On-time admission applications are considered for freshmen who apply by December 16th, 2013 and transfer students who apply by March 1st, 2014.
