We offer a variety of merit and need-based scholarships to U.S. students attending a Lowy International School Study Abroad Program, an Academic Gap Year Program, or Full Degree Program. Students can apply for one or more scholarships provided they meet eligibility requirements for each. 


Full Degree students must be accepted to the program to be considered and must be confirmed students to receive the award.
