Emory University Scholars Program for International Students 2024/21 –

Founded in 1836 and located in Atlanta, Emory University is one of the world’s leading research universities, known globally for its distinguished technical colleges, graduate and professional schools, and one of the world’s leading health care systems. Its main goal is to help improve global communities through individual actions and collective impact.

Emory University offers merit-based partial and full scholarships as part of its programs. Scholar programs aim to empower students with exceptional talent in an academic or creative field to become the best they can be and make a significant impact on their surroundings and community, through diverse resources and support.


How to apply:

To be considered for these study programs, you must choose one of three admission decision plans:

  • Early Decision I: A binding program that allows you to find out about your admissions decision early in your senior year.
  • Early Decision II: A binding program that allows you to find out your admission decision by February 15.
  • Ordinary Decision: A traditional, non-binding implementation plan.

The difference between Early Decision and Regular Decision is that Early Decision is for students who are sure of their decision and have chosen Emory University as their final first choice, but if a student does not have a clear first choice and wants to take some time to make their decision then it is better to choose Regular Decision.

Also while applying, you must answer “yes” to the question that says “Would you like to be considered for a merit scholarship?”

Selection process:

Selection is managed by the Office of Admissions in partnership with the selected faculty.


Selected candidates must attend the on-campus finalists’ visit held in the spring (at no cost to students).

The visit lasts for several days and includes activities and interviews aimed at helping students get to know the university and the various opportunities it provides them.

Scholarship Duration:

The duration of the scholarship is 4 years, and each year approximately 8,000-10,000 students apply, but only 175-200 students are selected as final Scholars candidates. The scholarships are renewable for 4 academic years (eight semesters) for students who maintain an outstanding academic record and meet the semester and annual requirements for their program. More details will be provided upon acceptance.

Host institutions:

Emory College of Arts and Sciences, Emory University Goizueta Business School, and Oxford College students may apply Early Decision to Emory College, Oxford College, or both. If they are accepted to both Emory College and Oxford College Early Decision, they will have until the deposit date to choose which campus they would like to attend.
