John Greenleaf Whittier Scholarship

Admitted international students are automatically considered for a John Greenleaf Whittier Scholarship. These scholarships are awarded based on the academic record and overall strength of the applicant to the College. Academic performance is the primary driver for this scholarship. For admitted first-year students the Whittier Admission GPA (9th - 11th grade weighted GPA) and standardized test results (unless test optional) are considered. For admitted transfer students the cumulative college GPA is considered.

John Greenleaf Whittier Scholarships are renewable for four years and will range from $10,000 to $30,000 per year.

Campus Jobs for International Students

International students are eligible for jobs on campus through institutional work-study program (if funds are available). International students are legally restricted from working off-campus, except when it is an internship related to their major.
