Applications for the Solomon Scholars Program scholarship are open to the following students:
A student must be a current high school student, domestic or international, who plans to enroll at a U.S. accredited four-year college or university as a degree-seeking full-time undergraduate student
Minimum of 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale (or equivalent) required
Scholarship is open to current high school freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors who have not yet graduated from high school
International Students are Welcome
In order to apply for the Solomon Scholars Program, the
student does not have to be a U.S. citizen as long as
he/she plans to enroll at a U.S. accredited four-year college
The Solomon Scholars Program (SSP) recognizes and
acknowledges the important role that international students
play in the economics and academics of the U.S. higher
education system. International students are not eligible to
receive financial aid at U.S. colleges and universities, and
are expected to full-pay for tuition and room and board.
International students play a vital role at U.S. universities,
subsidizing the college education of domestic students
through institution-based grants and add enormously through their academic input and multicultural experiences.
It’s important to remember, especially in the current political climate, that America is a nation of immigrants and derives its success from those immigrants. SSP acknowledges the financial burden of not being eligible for financial aid for many talented international students who aspire to bring their ideas and dreams to make the U.S. stronger. These are students who may stay in the U.S. post-college and contribute substantially to the U.S. economy. Because of this, SSP is also open to international students who plan to matriculate full-time at accredited four-year universities in the U.S.
