The 2021-2022 Scholarship Application is LIVE
About the House Scholarship Program:
Residential scholarships are awarded in the amount of $2,500 per semester (room and board rates range from $1,304 to $1,840 per month).
Our scholarships are awarded to applicants who demonstrate special financial need and academic promise, and who will contribute to the geographic and ethnic diversity of the ISH-DC resident population. Both international and U.S. students may apply. The process is competitive and not all applicants receive scholarships. Final applications are reviewed and selected by members of the Board of Directors serving on the Scholarship Committee.
Eligibility requirements for residential scholarships may vary, but candidates must meet these criteria:
- Possess an unconditional offer of admission from or be enrolled in one of our local academic institutions;
- Demonstrate financial need, academic promise, and the ability to contribute to the diversity of the ISH-DC resident population.
