Fund for Education Abroad Study-Abroad Scholarships
Funding amount: up to $5,000 per semester, up to $10,000 per academic year Website: www.fundforeducationabroad.org Applications not being accepted at this time
The fund for Education Abroad (FEA) invites applications from undergraduate students for FEA study aboard scholarships. These awards are intended to support students planning to participate in high-quality, rigorous education abroad programs in the 2013-2014 academic year or summer 2013.
Nationally, only about 14% of students who study abroad are STEM fields FEAT is hoping to increase this number. When granting scholarships, FEA targets students typically underrepresented in study abroad - minorities, science and technology majors, community college students, first generation students - providing these students a pivotal component of their education and key rung on their ladder towards success in the American workforce.
