A private, Catholic, co-educational college in the North Hills of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, La Roche is listed as a top 25 U.S. baccalaureate college hosting international students in the latest Open Doors Report by the Institute of International Education. The College integrates liberal arts and professional education in creative ways, empowering all members of our international community to become lifelong learners, achieve success in their chosen careers and promote justice and peace in a constantly changing global society.

International students accepted into an academic program are eligible to receive a merit-based scholarship ranging from $5,500 to $11,000 per year. The scholarship amount is based on the student’s academic achievement, and it can be renewed for up to five years. Students only need to submit an admission application—no separate scholarship application is necessary.

Wartburg traces its roots to 1852, when Pastor Wilhelm Löhe of Neuendettelsau, Bavaria, sent Pastor Georg Grossmann to America to work as a missionary of the Lutheran faith. With five students, Grossmann founded a teacher-training school for German immigrants in Saginaw, Mich. Today, Wartburg College helps students discover and claim their callings—connecting their learning with faith and values, their understanding of themselves and their gifts, their perspective on life and the future, and the opportunities for participating in church, community, and the larger society in purposeful and meaningful ways.

Upon meeting admission requirements, international students may be awarded scholarships ranging from $1,000 up to $24,000. To qualify, students must have a TOEFL score of at least 480, except as authorized by the Associate Director for International Admissions. Awards are based upon scholastic achievement, participation in co-curricular activities such as music, sports, or drama, community service, and financial need. Scholarships are renewable each academic year if students maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale. Students are expected to complete their degree within four nine-month academic terms. Transfer students will have credits from other institutions, thereby reducing the time it takes to complete their degree. Scholarships will not be awarded beyond the time required for degree completion. Students are expected to reside on campus to maintain full eligibility for their scholarship.
