There's still time to apply for the August
2006 semester at Butler and receive our International Student Scholarship
Award. EVERY admitted undergraduate freshman international student will
receive a minimum $7,000 scholarship. Moreover, the maximum scholarship
award has been raised to $14,000. The increases in awards over the minimum
award are tied primarily to a student's academic record in secondary school.
While the SAT is not required for admission and scholarship consideration,
we do encourage students to complete the SAT. Scholarships are renewable
for the length of the student's program, usually 4 years. International
students are still eligible for athletic or talent-based performing arts
scholarships, but cannot receive both athletic/talent awards AND the international
student award. However, students who receive international student awards
and enroll in our engineering program may still be eligible for an additional
$3,000 tuition remission.
