Location: Des Moines, Iowa
Drake University is recognized as one of the finest institutions of higher learning in the Midwest. A mid-sized, private university in the great city of Des Moines (ranked #5 best place to live), with a 10:1 student-faculty ratio, we offer the benefits and resources of a larger institution along with the advantages of intimate class sizes and close personal relationships. Nearly all our students graduate with at least one internship (many do 3 to 5!), graduate in 4 years, and are employed or in graduate school within 6 months of graduating. Plus we’re test-optional!
In addition to generous merit scholarships, international students may also qualify for a renewable International Student Grant as a partial award toward financial need. This grant, however, will not provide full funding. Most international students at Drake can expect a first-year cost of attendance of approximately ~$30k.
