Wheaton Refugee Scholarship


Wheaton College in Massachusetts is committed to improving the world through new ideas and educational opportunity.  We care deeply about assembling a global community of scholars that represents the widest possible range of viewpoints, not the least of which are the perspectives of students fleeing persecution and conflict in their home countries.

The Wheaton Refugee Scholarship will cover all costs of attendance and will be awarded to a refugee student from a war-torn nation who is able to obtain a visa to the United States. The scholarship is only available for undergraduate study as Wheaton College does not offer Graduate or PhD programs.

Selection preference will be for a qualified student from one of the seven nations outlined in the president’s recent executive order on immigration: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.  These students have faced extraordinary hardships and we believe it is our responsibility as global educators to make this commitment at this time.

Last year, Wheaton awarded $41.4 million dollars to our domestic and international students in the form of merit and need-based financial aid.  This additional scholarship is an incremental scholarship and does not detract from our commitment to others in our applicant pool.  Rather, it further expands our commitment to access to higher education.

Qualified students currently seeking entrance to the United States will be prioritized in reviewing applications for the Wheaton Refugee Scholarship, should the executive order on immigration be lifted in the near future.  Should the ban remain, qualified refugees from these or other war torn nations who are currently living in the United States will be considered.

Wheaton’s application deadline has been extended through March 1, 2017 for all candidates seeking consideration.  We will also waive the $60 application fee for these candidates.  In addition to the application requirements for international students, candidates must also submit the International Student Financial Aid Application.

Applicants are required to either submit a supplemental 100-200 word personal statement outlining their background and what receiving this scholarship would mean to them, or make this statement the topic of their more comprehensive application essay.
