Purdue Northwest, together with Temple University, and five other U.S. college and university partners, is launching a national scholarship program for incoming international students for fall 2019 to encourage international students to study in the United States. The other partners include Concordia College (Minnesota), Eastern Michigan University, James Madison University (Virginia), University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, Seattle University (Washington), Shoreline Community College (Washington) and Western New England University (Massachusetts). This new scholarship will provide financial support for incoming international students who are committed to furthering the #YouAreWelcomeHere message through intercultural exchange that bridges divides at their future campuses and beyond.
PNW is home to more than 700 international students from 45 countries. Employers understand that students enhance their knowledge, skills, and confidence through experiences abroad. The Office of Global Engagement is committed to internationalizing Purdue Northwest and supporting global awareness through the development of international partnerships and exchanges, education abroad opportunities, increased international student enrollment, and cross-cultural programming on and off campus.
