International students may also qualify for some of Harvey Mudd College’s merit-based scholarships, in particular the So Scholarship that is designated for international students at Harvey Mudd.
When you apply for admission, you will be considered for some merit-based scholarships automatically, but for others you will need to apply. Please visit our Scholarships and Grants page for more information about merit-based scholarship opportunities, as well as their requirements.
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.
The Kotecha Scholarship was established by Mahesh ’70 and Ruth Kotecha to support students who were born and/or studied in Africa and other countries outside the United States. This merit-based scholarship provides financial assistance to support students with limited resources but with talent and commitment to take their Harvey Mudd education and make the world better than they found it. All international students are considered for the Kotecha Scholarship.
The Grover/McManus Scholarship was established by Shamit Grover ’05 and Kara McManus to support international students from countries underrepresented at Harvey Mudd and to provide need-based financial assistance to talented international students who might otherwise not be able to attend Harvey Mudd. All international students are considered for the Grover/McManus Scholarship.
