Beginning in fall 2019, Concordia will offer two annual, renewable scholarships that cover a minimum of 50 percent tuition to selected international undergraduate students dedicated to advancing intercultural learning and understanding at Concordia. First-year international students who have applied to Concordia can apply for the #YouAreWelcomeHere scholarship. All academic majors and fields of study are welcome to apply.
In addition to scholarships, international students are eligible to work on campus up to 20 hours per week during the school year. We estimate students will earn $3,000 per year from working an average of 10 hours per week, but some students who work as much as possible are able to earn more.
