Fund for Education Abroad Scholarship Application
The Fund for Education Abroad (FEA) invests in promising undergraduate students with financial need who wish to study abroad. Applicants who meet our eligibility requirements may participate on any international education program that meets their academic objectives. Scholarships range up to $5,000 for the Spring 2020 semester abroad, and can be applied for programs that run for at least 28 days.
Each applicant will submit a completed application form (includes two essays), their unofficial transcript, a financial aid form, and request a letter of recommendation. Scholarship recipients will be announced in November, 2019.
The mission of the Fund for Education Abroad (FEA) is to provide scholarships and ongoing support to students who are underrepresented among the US study abroad population. FEA makes life-changing, international experiences accessible to all by supporting minority, community college, and first-generation college students before, during, and after they participate in education abroad programs.
FEA was established as a 501(c)(3) organization in 2010 to address the need for an independent study abroad scholarship provider. Applicants from groups underrepresented in study abroad are given preference, in an effort to make the demographics of US undergraduates studying abroad reflect the rich diversity of the US population. Since 2010, FEA has awarded $1.7 million in scholarships to 425 undergraduates, helping students from all over the United States follow their dreams abroad.
