International Scholarships

For international students, choosing the right school is a big decision, but figuring out how to pay for it may be an even bigger one. Here at ECPI University we want to make sure you are as prepared as possible to start your educational journey. To further support you, we have established several scholarships to assist international students in financing their education.  When applying for these scholarships, you must meet the admissions requirements for the program of choice, and the criteria outlined below.

In addition to these ECPI University scholarships, there are thousands of other scholarships and awards available for everything from student competitions, awards based on association affiliations, fields of study and many more. We encourage you to research those as well.

If you believe you might qualify for one or more of our scholarships, we encourage you to discuss these, and other options with an ECPI University admissions or financial advisor.*
