The University of Dayton along with 57 other colleges nationwide has pledged to create new scholarships for international students to study in the U.S., as part of the #YouAreWelcomeHere scholarship program. Beginning in fall 2019, the Marianist university will offer two annual scholarships, that will cover at least half of the receiving student’s tuition. Christine DeLisio Kremer, director of international and graduate admission at UD, a university that was itself founded by immigrants, says the “The University of Dayton is proud to help launch this scholarship program as part of our commitment to the common good.” The scholarships will be renewable and will hopefully further the efforts of bringing about intercultural understanding among participating campuses. The university hopes that through this program, eligible international and refugee students will find support in their inclusive learning environment and see their path to a University of Dayton degree.
