Applications are PRIORITY ADMISSION OCTOBER 31. After this date applicaitons are accepted on a rolling admission basis. We strongly encourage students to apply early!


How are scholarship applications evaluated? 


Scholarships are limited and competitive! Applications are assessed based on the quality of application, demonstration of commitment to community/campus, and need. A follow-up interview is also required.


Additional Requirements/ Expectations 


All scholarship students are expected to fulfill all academic requirements for the courses and successfully complete the program. During the programs scholarship students blog about their experience to help others learn about social entrepreneurship and study abroad.


What other resources are available? 
Students have been successful contacting their home university’s Study Abroad, Financial Aid, or Student Activities Office for funding opportunities. The 4-week programs are considered full-time (6 credits) for summer study. Does your university have a leadership studies or social entrepreneurship program? If so, you might have access to special funds from your university for this program!
