Do you give full scholarships to international students who perform well on the SAT?

After speaking to an admissions officer, I learned that Embry-Riddle gives out partial merit-based scholarships to international students who have a high GPA and SAT score.

To be eligible for these scholarships, the school looks for a minimum GPA of 3.0 and a combined reading and math SAT score of 1100. However, the admissions officer emphasized that these scholarships are competitive, so while these are the minimums they look at, the better you do, the more likely you are to be awarded money. You are not required to take SAT subject tests for these scholarships.

The amount of money each scholarship is worth ranges between $3,000-$15,000 per year (cost of attending the school is about $43,000 per year). The number of scholarships they give out each year depends on how many people apply.

Finally, the admissions officer recommended that you apply by January 15, since this is the priority deadline for scholarships and they tend to give out most money to candidates that apply by that date. The final date to apply is March 1.

If you have any more questions, you can call the university at (928) 777-3728.
