Duquesne University International Student Fund (DUISF)
Join us in making Duquesne a global university!
The international student population of Duquesne is an important component of what makes Duquesne an outstanding educational institution. Like their American counterparts international students face similar challenges while studying here at Duquesne University. However, international students often deal with a number of challenges that are unique to their U.S. colleagues. Frequent fluctuations in their home currencies, political issues, family issues while bring far from home are just a few examples. Duquesne has frequently assisted all of its students when they find themselves in unusual funding situations.
As the President of the Duquesne University Scholarship Association, one of Father Hogan's goals is to establish a scholarship fund that would address the needs of international students when they find themselves in need of funding due to government regulations. International students are not eligible for governmental financial assistance. The establishment of an International Student Emergency Fund would fill this need and continue the tradition of helping our students to succeed and obtain their degrees.
Thousands of alumni have been touched and changed by Duquesne, as the vast majority of them have received some sort of financial assistance. Please consider joining Father Hogan and other International Alumni in building this fund!
