Ambassador Scholarship Program
The Ambassador Scholarship Program is designed to reward academically talented and motivated students from every continent in the world that would like to pursue their university studies at Heidelberg.
Ambassador Scholarship Eligibility
Some of the criteria for selection include:
- Advanced English language skills
- Record of academic achievement
- Other activities and experiences which demonstrate personal initiative and leadership
- Recommendations from school administrators and teachers
- Desire to participate in global education activities and programming at Heidelberg
Scholarships are competitive and will guarantee a minimum of $8,000 per year in grant and scholarship compensation to the recipients. All scholarship recipients must maintain at least a 2.75 grade point average at Heidelberg and demonstrate standard four-year academic progress to renew their awards annually. Scholarship amounts are determined AFTER receiving English language proficiency proof, the NACES evaluation of transcripts, and any other background information that will help qualify performance (for example portfolios, CVs, biographical notes, etc.). The rest of the amount of tuition and fees must be paid in full by the student or sponsor. The Ambassador Scholarship is received independently of Scholars Day scholarships.
