Hints for Scholarship Applications
• DO NOT WAIT UNTIL YOU HAVE BEEN ACCEPTED INTO A STUDY ABROAD PROGRAM
TO START APPLYING FOR SCHOLARSHIPS.
• MANY APPLICATIONS ARE DUE OVER ONE YEAR IN ADVANCE OF STUDYING
ABROAD—before you even apply for your study abroad program—START EARLY!!!
• Make good use of your academic writing skills. Revise all essays and ask for feedback on your work. If
possible, schedule an appointment with the Writing Center in Duffy 107.
• Are you a good writer? Or perhaps a talented photographer? Look for student travel writing and
photography contests for extra funding ideas. The following are a few contests to be aware of:
http://abroadviewmagazine.net/about/contribute/
http://www.transitionsabroad.com/information/writers/student.shtml
• Ask your parents if any scholarships exist at their workplace for children of employees.
• Look in your community— funding may be available through civic, ethnic, or religious groups. For
example, former Girl Scouts should look at http://www.cjsfoundation.org/.
• Are you a member of any honor societies? If so, check to see whether study abroad scholarships are
offered to members of your society. For instance, Sigma Tau Delta, the International English Honor
Society, offers study abroad scholarships to its members for up to $3,000 per term.
http://www.english.org/sigmatd/members/scholarships/
