The Fund for Education Abroad (FEA) has announced that the application for the 2012-2013 academic year and 2013 summer scholarships is now open. Applications can be accessed here.
FEA scholarships were designed by professionals in the field of Education Abroad to meet the growing need for financial resources to enable more students to go abroad. Scholarships will be up to $5,000 per semester and are not limited to specific programs, destinations, or fields of study. FEA will award funds for students planning to study abroad on academically rigorous programs with a preference for underrepresented students. The deadline for FEA scholarship applications is November 14, 2011. A list of frequently asked questions and a printable flyer for your office can be found here.
With your support, FEA was able to award eight scholarships in their initial grant cycle and they hope to award even more this year. They invite you to join them in their effort to make study abroad possible for all students. Join your colleagues and education abroad organizations in sponsoring these important scholarships.
