UI Scholarship: recipients whose home campus site is other than Moscow
Students who receive any other individual UI scholarships awarded on a one-time, non-renewable basis must:
- Enroll full-time for the term (at least 12 credits as undergraduates, 9 credits as graduate students, and 10 credits as law students)
- Enroll in a minimum of 6 credits of UI classes for the term
- Enroll in a degree program offered through the university’s off-campus center
UI Scholarship: recipients on consortium who attend another school
Consortium agreements allow UI degree-seeking students with special circumstances to enroll in another institution for one or two semesters while still receiving UI financial aid and scholarships. Scholarship-recipients who submit a consortium are asked to explain their reasoning Student Financial Aid will determine the student’s eligibility.
