Scholarships

At Roger Williams University all international applicants are automatically considered for generous merit scholarships that renew annually.

Roger Williams offers scholarship to qualified international applicants with a guaranteed amount of $20,000 up to $28,500.*  The specific scholarship amount is determined by a holistic review of the applicant. 

To better support our international students and families, we also award a special RWU Travel Grant for students living outside of the northeast of the United States. This grant is awarded to all qualified students in addition to merit scholarships awarded at time of admission and is designed to assist with the costs associated with traveling to Bristol. The RWU Travel Grant is renewed annually for the four years of your undergraduate education. Students meeting the geographic criteria will automatically qualify for this award.

For maximum scholarship consideration, you must submit your Undergraduate Application for Admission by February 1 for Fall Semester and November 1 for Spring Semester. (Your application for admission will also act as your scholarship application. No additional applications are necessary for scholarship consideration.)

*Government sponsorship may reduce the amount of scholarship.
