The University of the Virgin Islands (UVI) scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students are awarded by the University of the Virgin Islands Scholarship Committee. All UVI on-ground students (freshmen, current, transfer, graduate, and international students) will be considered for UVI Institutional Scholarships based on their academic transcripts, completion of the electronic scholarship application, and other documents as required. The number of institutional scholarships offered by UVI varies in amount and duration depending on the availability of funds allocated by contributing donors/agencies. UVI Institutional Scholarships are awarded to undergraduate and graduate students pursuing their first bachelor’s or master’s degree, as applicable.
Criteria will vary, depending on which scholarship is being applying for and what the student's current year in school is. To be eligible for the undergraduate scholarships, applicants must: have a 2.5 GPA; have earned at least 12 credits of academic study at UVI (continuing students only); be a full-time student matriculated into an undergraduate degree program at UVI; and be a U.S. Citizen, Permanent Resident or F-1 International Student. For the graduate scholarships, applicants must: have a 3.5 GPA; have earned at least 6 credits of academic study at UVI; be a full-time student matriculated into a graduate degree program at UVI; and be a U.S. Citizen, Permanent Resident or F-1 International Student.
