SCHOLARSHIPS

International student scholarships are awarded to qualified international students based on academic achievement. Carthage international scholarships range from $5,000 to $15,000 per year and are renewable.

NEED-BASED GRANTS

International grants may be available, by application, to international students who require additional assistance. These grants require additional documentation. Students should plan to provide a significant portion of their own educational expenses. Please submit the following documentation to apply for an international grant:

Financial Support

Each applicant must provide a sponsor’s statement to guarantee that the student will receive enough money promptly as it becomes needed for living and studies during the full period of time necessary to complete the Carthage degree program.

Second, after being admitted for studies and before the Form I-20 is issued, students with private sponsors provide an advance deposit of money to confirm the availability of the funds that are guaranteed by the sponsor. This money is placed in the student’s account at Carthage, and the amount of this deposit is written in the student’s Form I-20.

Enrollment Deposit

International students admitted to Carthage can secure their place in the upcoming class by submitting a $200 advance payment. Information regarding class registration, as well as housing information for students planning to live on campus, is only sent to students who have submitted this advance payment.
Submit the enrollment deposit online (credit card required)

All of a student’s advance deposit, if paid, is refundable in the very unusual event that the U.S. government denies the student’s visa application to study at Carthage.

For students entering in the fall term, advance payments submitted to Carthage prior to May 1 are refundable (if requested in writing) before this date. Any advance payments for fall term received after May 1 will be accepted on a space available basis.

For students entering in the January term or spring term, advance payments submitted to Carthage prior to November 1 are refundable (if requested in writing) before this date. Any advance payments for January term or spring term received after November 1 will be accepted on a space available basis.
