Global College Scholarships
Merit Based and The Dean’s Lead Serve Scholarship
LIU Global offers a merit based scholarship and the Dean’s Lead-Serve Scholarship both of which are awarded at the time of a student's admission to the school. These programs provide assistance for tuition charges only (fees are not included). Based on academic achievement (high school averages), and/or participation in extra-curricular activities and community service, and/or demonstrated leadership experience and/or international experience/exposure, these school-funded scholarships are awarded by the admissions scholarship committee.
Recipients of these scholarships are informed of their awards in their letter of admissions, sent by the Office of Admissions. Awards also appear on the recipient's financial aid award notice.
LIU Global scholarships are available for up to four years or eight semesters, as long as the student remains in good academic standing.
Global Ambassador Scholarship
LIU Global students are eligible to apply for the Global Ambassador Scholarship after completing one semester with the school by the end of spring. The Global Ambassador Scholarship will be awarded to qualified students in recognition of their past record of support and participation in admissions related activities as defined below. Recipients of this scholarship will be expected to continue their support and participation in such activities during the academic year that they receive the scholarship.
Recipients of scholarships are required each year to complete the federal government's Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Once the Office of Student Financial Services receives the federal FAFSA information, eligibility for N.Y. State's TAP program and the Federal Pell Grant Program can be determined, and estimates can be provided on the financial aid award notice. These notices also provide estimates of the Campus-funded award(s), and any other financial aid available to the student. The Office of Student Financial Services will calculate the exact dollar amount of any scholarship/grant award during the bill clearance process each term.
