This scholarship criterion is subject to review every year. The recipients will be chosen after careful consideration by the scholarship committee composed of the ISS international adviser and two other faculty members.

 

 Florida Linkage Institutes

 

 

​The Linkage Institutes have developed innovative programs to bring Florida business leaders into direct contact with educators who have expertise and close working relations in targeted countries. Equally important networks are formed when students from overseas return to their home countries, often to assume important professional and business positions, and take with them the friendships they cultivated in Florida. This type of personal connection to the world outside of Florida translates into immediate and long-term benefits to the state.
 
Being awarded a Linkage sponsorship allows selected international students to study at in-state tuition rates through the use of the Non-Resident Tuition Exemption Program. In order to be eligible, students must be enrolled in one of Florida’s state universities or community colleges and meet establish academic and state-legislated requirements.
