Brandeis University is well known for the strong Jewish presence on campus, but the school also has a long history of encouraging international students, especially through the Wien International Scholarship Program, which was established in 1958. The need-based scholarship meets the full financial need of accepted students as well as the full fare for a ticket to and from their home country. The university currently has over 400 international undergraduate students representing 65 countries. Like all
schools on this list, Brandeis has both administrative supports for those coming from other countries – mainly the International Students and Scholars Office – and student-run clubs focusing on different global cultures. Of course, college students are college students no matter where they come from, so potential international students interested in Brandeis will be happy to hear that its International Club also runs Pachanga, a yearly dance party that is one of the school’s most popular social events.
