Scholarships

You do not need to submit any additional forms to be considered for a scholarship. All scholarship decisions are based on a student’s academic history. Scholarship amounts range from $14,000 to $32,000 for full-time students taking classes on Albright’s campus. If awarded, the scholarship is renewable for up to four years provided you maintain satisfactory grades. Half of the scholarship amount is applied to your bill at the start of the fall semester; the other half is applied at the start of the spring semester.

On-campus jobs may be available but will not be a significant source of income. International students are permitted to work no more than 20 hours per week and will usually earn less than $2,000 a year.

Hello! My name is Nicole Christie, and I am the Admission Counselor responsible for international applications. I really enjoy assisting students through the admission process and getting to know so many unique and wonderful people.

After completing my Bachelor’s degree in International Studies, I went on to work for an international student placement organization that put me in contact with Albright College. I had such great experiences working with Albright and placing international students here that I was eager to join the Admission team. Now I have been here for eleven years and I can confirm that Albright College is a great place for students to receive a top-notch education in a caring and supportive community.

I understand that applying to colleges, managing the financial aid process, and choosing the right one can be an overwhelming experience. I am happy to help you through. If you have any questions about Albright or the application process, please feel free to contact me.
