The purpose of the fund is to provide financial assistance to residents who have demonstrated a commitment to the philosophy of International House and the value of “service above self” and encourage them and others to make a contribution to society. It is our belief and hope that residents who give of their talent and time to the life of the College will continue to make a contribution to the community in which they live after leaving International House.

How are scholarships awarded?

A scholarship of $1,000 towards the cost of the student accommodation at International House is awarded each year. Current residents who will be living in the house for the full academic year are encouraged to apply. A Selection Committee of the International House Alumni & Friends will evaluate written applications, conducts interviews and makes a recommendation to the Board of Directors of International House Limited who will make the final decision.

Applicants are assessed on the basis of their community involvement, demonstrated commitment to international friendship, tolerance and cross-cultural understanding. Consideration will also be given to academic merit and financial need.


All current residents who will be residing in the House for the full academic year of the scholarship are eligible to apply. Download and complete the Application Form and submit it to the office.
