2024 King Scholars Scholarship at Dartmouth College—Fully Funded

Applications are now being accepted from international students for the 2024 King Scholars Scholarship at Dartmouth College. The King Scholar Program prepares today’s young scholars from developing countries to be tomorrow’s leaders in alleviating global poverty.

The King Scholars Program seeks low-income students from developing nations who are interested in alleviating poverty in their home countries. At Dartmouth, King Scholars receive 4-year scholarships and extensive mentoring and leadership training. Upon graduation, they return home to tackle poverty issues, supported by Dartmouth’s alumni network.

Dartmouth College, founded in 1769, educates the most promising students and prepares them for a lifetime of learning and of responsible leadership through a faculty dedicated to teaching and the creation of knowledge. Over 40 departments and programs constitute Dartmouth’s liberal arts core, which promotes critical thinking, creativity, and collaboration among our students. The liberal arts imperative informs every field of study and crosses departments, programs, and schools. Our students learn to ask bigger questions and apply more perspectives to the answers. They gain a deeper understanding of humanity and a broader view of what’s at stake for societies and throughout the world.
