Luther’s website says that it strives to meet the full demonstrated of international students. It also says that it has students from Nepal. What is the maximum financial aid that Luther offers, or has offered, to students from Nepal?
Also, how welcoming is the campus community? The percentage of international students seems rather low.
The Luther college website writes, “Luther College’s funds for international students are not limitless, however. In general, students should expect to pay for a portion (up to one half or more) of their own educational expenses through family funds and/or aid programs offered through local or national churches, government agencies, and cultural organizations.”
And the costs to attend Luther are:
- Double room—$3,570
- Health Insurance—$940
- Estimate for books/personal expenses—$2,575
- Estimated total—$50,895
The scholarships that are available to International Students are listed here: http://www.luther.edu/admissions/international/financial-aid/scholarships/
It appears that there are lots of scholarships for International students and one might be able to cover full tuition from these scholarships. I do not know a Nepali student at Luther but I am hoping that someone with more knowledge will also follow up here. By the time, I suggest you email the admission officers at Luther and get in touch with them regarding the scholarships. They will be happy to let you know if one can get full scholarship or not.
