So International Scholarship
Established by Yuen Sang and Yu Yuen Kit So, parents of Peter (’86) and Paul (’88) So, the Yuen Sang and Yu Yuen Kit So International Scholarship Fund provides scholarship support to international students and non-citizens living in the United States and attending Harvey Mudd College. The Office of Admission selects one recipient for each entering class based on superior academic performance as shown in the application for admission. The So award is offered regardless of financial need. The award is automatically renewed for the scholar’s second year, but continuation of the award is contingent upon maintaining a minimum 2.75 cumulative grade point average. All international students are considered for the So Scholarship.
Additional funding for international financial aid comes from the generous support of Mahesh ’70 and Ruth Kotecha and from Shamit Grover ‘05 and Kara McManus in order to ensure that talented international students are able to attend Harvey Mudd College regardless of their financial circumstances.
