Albion College International Scholarships

International students who meet or exceed the minimum requirements for admission will be awarded academic scholarships . In determining scholarships, we look at a student's overall application, academic achievement and potential for success at Albion College. Scholarships are also available to recognize fine arts talent; students must submit an audition or portfolio for review after admission.

We have many more qualified international applicants than we can support though our financial aid awards. In general, families must be able to contribute most of the cost attendance from sources outside of Albion College.

Albion has opened my mind to things that I would not have learned otherwise; from the city of Albion to the homemade solar panels in Israel and everything in between. With every class and extracurricular activity that I do, I find myself expanding my horizons. Roohia, Pakistan, Sociology, 2018
