Scholarships for the International MSc Programs

Thanks to the generous support of our scholarship sponsors, we are able to grant a limited number of full and partial scholarships to candidates who have been selected during a competitive review. The vision of our scholarship sponsors is for scholars to be instruments of positive and just change by applying the knowledge and skills acquired at the Robert H. Smith Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environment to benefit their home countries. 


Types of scholarships

Scholarships are granted only to candidates from economically-developing countries. 

  • Full scholarships cover tuition, student dormitory housing on campus, medical insurance, monthly living stipend and student visa.
    The scholarship does not cover the application fee, round-trip airfare, initial living expenses (1.5 months), and a tuition deposit ($500 which will be refunded upon graduation and return to your home country). Candidates are required to fund these expenses.
  • Partial scholarships are determined on a case-by-case basis.

Scholarship offers may be withdrawn and offered to applicants on the waiting list if the candidate does not meet the necessary requirements. 


How to apply for a scholarship

Scholarships are granted to candidates who have been accepted to one of the international MSc programs offered by the International School.
To apply for a scholarship, submit a completed scholarship application form together with your full online application during the application period of the program you are applying to. 

There are a limited number of scholarships and scholarship selection is very competitive.

We strongly urge applicants to seek funding from other sources early in the application process. Other scholarship sources can be found at the link below.
