Looking for a way to help pay for a great education? The Global Academic Advantage program at Lesley University provides scholarships to international students. We know how hard you’ve worked, and how excited you are to study at a U.S. university. We want to help make your education dream come true.

Your dream is achievable with the Global Academic Advantage program at Lesley University. Our program combines academic study, cultural immersion, and English language instruction into Year 1 of your degree program. You’ll get a head start on your degree and receive personalized support from a team of advisors and professors who are focused on your success.

So, how do you qualify for a scholarship? First, you need to apply. Scholarships are available on a first-come, first-served basis, with limited availability—so you’ll want to jump on this opportunity. Once you’ve been accepted, you’ll automatically receive the Lynx* scholarship. (Lesley University’s official mascot is the lynx, a type of wild cat.)

After you apply, we’ll schedule a call to learn more about you and your goals. That conversation will provide the basis for a decision on the higher-level scholarship awards. No matter which scholarship you receive, it will stay with you for all four years, as long as you remain in good academic standing—you’ll need at least a 2.5 GPA to move on to Year 2 of your degree program. Here’s what the scholarships look like:

Name of Scholarship Total Scholarships over 4 years Total Scholarships per year
Ambassador $20,000 $5,000
Gold $15,000 $3,750
Premier $10,000 $2,500
Lynx* $6,000 $1,500

A scholarship from the Global Academic Advantage program is our way of saying, “You deserve this!” for all your effort. We want to support your path toward a degree, so you can be prepared for an exciting future!
