​National and International Scholarships

The most prestigious national and international scholarships provide significant funding for undergraduate and graduate education. They recognize outstanding achievement in the classroom and the world beyond it. Even for the best students, these scholarships are hard to obtain. Competitive applicants will need to have at least a 3.5 grade point average, a wide variety of extracurricular and community activities, and leadership skills.

Dr. A. Scott Henderson is currently Furman's Director of National and International Scholarships. His office is 101-D Hipp Hall. He can be contacted via email (scott.henderson@Furman.edu) or by phone (294.3384) to discuss various scholarship opportunities.
