International Student Excellence Award

The International Student Excellence Award provides $5,000 to an international student in our faculty who demonstrates outstanding academic performance. 

This scholarship will be granted to a 2nd year HSS student, and is renewable for recipients’ third and fourth years of study, so long as the student maintains scholarship standing. This scholarship was first awarded in Fall 2019.

The scholarship will be awarded annually (as continued funding permits) at the annual HSS Dean’s List Award Ceremony.
