International Scholarships

There are a number of scholarships available for international students at Lincoln.

Scholarships are usually awarded in recognition of academic ability or achievement. Some focus on other factors, including personal qualities, financial need, where you live and the course of study that you choose.

Most scholarships are applied to tuition fees, and some may also be used to cover accommodation and living costs. They may also be in the form of textbooks or the sponsor’s product.

The majority of scholarships are tenable for one year, with some available for the duration of your undergraduate degree provided certain standards are maintained. Listed below are some scholarships available for international students:
