International Scholarships and Study Abroad
Elizabethtown College's international scholarships are intended to attract a high-achieving and diverse group of international students to campus.
International scholarships are only awarded for semesters that the international student is studying on the Elizabethtown College campus with the exception of instances where a study-abroad experience is required by their major. In these cases, the international scholarship will be applicable for study abroad for a maximum of one or two semesters as required by the major. If the international student chooses to study abroad and the experience is not required for his/her major, the international scholarship is not applicable.
