George Mason University offers a limited number of merit-based scholarships to highly qualified international freshmen students who are non-immigrant, non-resident, and degree seeking. Scholarships range from 2,000 to 10,000 per academic year and are renewable for up to four years based on good academic standing. To be considered for this competitive scholarship, you must submit your complete application for freshman admission by April 1. There is not a separate scholarship application.

  • Applicants must be on an F1 visa
  • There is not a separate scholarship application form. All qualified freshman applicants will be considered for scholarship as part of the regular application review process.
