graduation from college


The School of Undergraduate Studies at Chestnut Hill College provides abundant opportunities for international students to minimize the cost of their education. Academic scholarships and merit awards for international students range from $5,000 - $15,000 annually - a significant portion of the total cost of attendance.

Global Partner Grant

Chestnut Hill College values the presence of international students as much as it values it’s partnerships with local two-year institutions and community colleges. That’s why the College awarded an average scholarship of $12,000 per year to international students in the Fall of 2011. In addition, the School of Undergraduate Studies is announcing the $1,000 Global Partner Grant specifically for international student graduates from the following institutions:

  • Community College of Philadelphia
  • Delaware County Community College
  • Manor College
  • Montgomery County Community College
  • Valley Forge Military College
