FIES will give preference to children of former FIES Scholarship recipients. Awards are based on academic performance, class standing (preference given to juniors/seniors), letters of recommendation, financial need, and leadership involvement. The scholarships are awarded for one academic year (both fall and spring semesters). Recipients will be required to pay summer tuition and fees if you enroll. As an undergraduate student, you must be enrolled in at least 12 credit hours each semester to receive the full scholarship.
