Wheaton College in Massachusetts is offering Wheaton Refugee Scholarship 2021. As Wheaton College is committed to improving the world through new ideas and educational opportunity. We care deeply about assembling a global community of scholars that represents the widest possible range of viewpoints, not the least of which are the perspectives of students fleeing persecution and conflict in their home countries. To this end, the Wheaton Refugee Scholarship was established in 2017.

Each year, Wheaton awards more than $40 million to our domestic and international students in the form of merit- and need-based financial aid. This additional scholarship is an incremental scholarship and does not detract from our commitment to others in our applicant pool. Rather, it further expands our commitment to access to higher education.

Eligibility criteria:

Students who meet the following criteria are eligible to apply for the Wheaton Refugee Scholarship:

  • Students applying for a first-time
    undergraduate, liberal arts and sciences bachelor’s degree.
  • Students who have fled a war-torn region as a refugee and who do not hold U.S. citizenship or permanent residency status, or who have legally entered the United States as refugees.
  • Students who would not have the financial means to attend Wheaton without a full scholarship.
  • Students who, if admitted and choose to enroll, are able to obtain a visa to study full-time in the United States (or, who are already in the U.S. on a legal refugee visa status).
  • Applicants for this scholarship will only be considered for this one scholarship and will not be considered for early decision or early action admission, or any other Wheaton College merit or need-based financial aid programs. 

Students in any of the following categories are not eligible to apply for the Wheaton Refugee Scholarship:

  • Transfer applicants (students who have previously matriculated and enrolled in a post-secondary degree, diploma, or certificate program).
  • Students who have already earned an associate’s or bachelor’s, master’s, PhD, or another post-secondary, tertiary-level degree, diploma or certificate.
  • Students interested in master’s or PhD graduate degree programs; Wheaton College does not offer these graduate degrees.
  • Students enrolled at or who graduated from a United World College.
  • Students in the U.S. with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status.
  • Students who have the capacity to pay for a portion of their education should not apply for this scholarship, but should instead apply as a regular Wheaton applicant.

Application fees:

The $60 application fee will be waived.

Funding:

One four-year Wheaton Refugee Scholarship that covers the total cost of attendance will be awarded each academic year.
