For over thirty-five years, INTERLINK has helped students prepare for success at U.S. institutions of higher education. Any student from an underrepresented country (eight or fewer students per country at any given center during any given session) who a) is not receiving government funds and b) is full-time, may receive a scholarship. Awards are renewable each term, provided that recipients’ full-time status and grades do not change. In the case of students needing to take only one core course to complete the program, the percentages below are applied using the half-time tuition rate.
Based on the students’ grade point average (GPA), scholarships fall into the following categories:
I. New Students
a. Presidential GPA: 91%-100% 50% scholarship
b. Academic GPA: 81%-90% 30% scholarship
II. Family Members of Alumni
Knowing that families make sacrifices when they send their children abroad, INTERLINK offers a reduction in the cost of education for family of students and alumni:
- Current and former students’ family members receive 20% scholarship
III. Governments and Sponsoring Agencies
A special tuition discount may be offered for groups of students from any single source per center per term, such as a corporate sponsor or a university located outside the US.
IV. Discount Match
University students: INTERLINK will match any tuition scholarships that our partner universities give to students, using the same formula as that of the university. For example, if the university offers 50% tuition discount to a given student, INTERLINK will provide the same discount to the same student during their periods of INTERLINK enrollment. Students receiving this discount do not qualify for any other INTERLINK scholarships.
University employees and their dependents: INTERLINK will provide tuition discounts for employees and their dependents at the same rate they qualify for university tuition discounts. For example, should the university offer 50% university tuition for dependents of its employees, INTERLINK will offer 50% to those same people at the same rate during their periods of INTERLINK enrollment. Dependents receiving this discount do not qualify for any other INTERLINK scholarships.
