University of Oregon International Cultural Service Program 2024

The University of Oregon is proud to offer an exciting scholarship opportunity for international students through the International Cultural Service Program (ICSP). This unique program not only provides financial assistance but also promotes cross-cultural exchange within the university and local community. ICSP participants are selected from a group of talented international students and are tasked with providing educational and cultural services to the community in exchange for scholarship assistance.


Through the ICSP, students provide in-person or virtual presentations about aspects of their home culture to groups such as K-12 schools, elder care settings, and other community organizations. This program was created by the Oregon State Board of Higher Education in 1982 and is currently funded by the University of Oregon with internal fee remission resources provided by the Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships, and administered by the International Student and Scholar Services unit in the Division of Global Engagement.


Selected ICSP students receive a partial tuition-waiver scholarship, and the scholarship is renewable each year to completion of a UO degree, provided the student follows the requirements of the ICSP program. To be eligible, applicants must be admissible or fully admitted to the University of Oregon, cannot be U.S. citizens, U.S. permanent residents, or eligible to receive U.S. federal financial assistance, and must demonstrate sufficient financial resources in addition to the scholarship and meet the minimum 3.5 cumulative GPA requirement.

The selection process for the ICSP scholarship is rigorous, and takes into account a variety of factors including financial need, experience participating in cultural activities, demonstrated performance and presentation skills, strong academic records, and strong communication skills. The application deadline for the ICSP scholarship is February 16, 2024, and interested applicants can apply through the UO Scholarship Dashboard. Incoming freshmen and new transfer, new graduates, and new post-baccalaureate applicants must first apply for admission to the University of Oregon before they can apply for scholarships.
