Simpson University is dedicated to the mission of celebrating culture and promoting unique cultural expressions from around the globe. To accomplish that task we must encourage varied cultural perspectives. This ideal has inspired Simpson University to create the Imago Dei Scholarship Program to make a four-year private Christian education a reality for students from outside the USA who display exemplary academic skill and express a desire to promote culture and equality.

Scholarship Program

Our hope is to make attending Simpson University an affordable option for international students who show academic excellence and are eager to celebrate culture and equality. Scholarships are limited, so apply now.

Who is eligible to apply for the scholarship?

Those who meet the minimum GPA and have residence outside the USA may be eligible to receive the scholarship. Selection is available for the following:

  • International students with residence outside the U.S.
  • Missionary children living outside the U.S.
  • Those with completed I-20 Packet
  • Those with F1 Visa

How much is the scholarship?

The Imago Dei Scholarship awards up to $18,000 a year (up to $15,000 base scholarship and up to an additional $3,000 based on financial need). A student can receive up to $72,000 over four years from Simpson University through The Imago Dei Scholarship program.

Imago Dei Scholarship Steps

Scholarship benefits

The Imago Dei Scholarship pays a significant portion of the student's tuition, allowing a student to maximize additional student aid to pay for the remainder of tuition and on-campus housing.

Additional requirements

Recipients of the scholarship must
commit to living on campus to experience the benefits of the Simpson University community unless approved to live off campus.



All Simpson University scholarships are available on a first-come, first-served basis to new incoming students only. Student-athletes receive separate scholarship awards.
