KSU Office of International Programs
There are several scholarships awarded by the KSU Office of International Programs for education abroad programs. Some scholarships are awarded to just 1 student, others are awarded to multiple students. Our scholarships range from $100-$5,000 and can be used for any program, as long as the student has applied through the Education Abroad application system for the program and the scholarship.
KSU Office of International Programs scholarships are indicated by an 'OIP:' in front of the scholarship name on the Education Abroad Scholarships List.
KSU academic colleges & departments
Several departments and colleges at KSU offer education abroad scholarships for their students, including the College of Business Administration, the College of Engineering, the College of Human Ecology, to name a few. You must contact the Colleges or Departments directly for additional details.
Most of the program providers, or 3rd party providers, Education Abroad is affiliated with offer scholarships to students who go on their programs. A few of these organizations even give KSU Education Abroad scholarship money to award exclusively to KSU students who go on their programs!
There are many nationally competitive education abroad scholarships with a variety of different requirements. Some national scholarships are based on academic merit, financial need, academic major, foreign language study, non-traditional locations, etc. For more information about nationally competitive scholarships, contact:
Jim Hohenbary – Program Director - Office of the Vice Provost of Undergraduate Studies

If you are really motivated, you can do some research on your own. Try contacting large banks or insurance companies and ask if they offer education abroad scholarships. You can also check with any professional organizations you may be affiliated with, fraternities or sororities, local governments, churches, or other organizations may offer education abroad scholarships as well.
If you received the Goss Discovery Scholarship or the Faculty-Led Programs Scholarship you have to complete 2 service projects for Education Abroad during your time abroad or upon your return to K-State. We encourage you to complete unique Service Projects that highlight your individual background, experiences abroad, talents and skills. You can find some examples of past projects here. This is by no means an exhaustive list and we look forward to continuing to receive unique projects.
In addition, you must help with the Education Abroad Fair in the academic year upon your return, for at least 1 hour (if returning to K-State). If you volunteer for 3 or more hours to help with the fair (in preparation or the day of) then that will count as 1 service project. (If you volunteer for less then 3 hours, you will still need to complete 2 other service projects.)
Opportunities to help with the Education Abroad Fair and other Education Abroad events will be emailed to you as they become available.
In order to have your projects approved or track your progress/completion, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Introducing our first ever #ScholarSpotlight for the month of October!
Meet Jerusha Matthews, a KSU senior studying Fisheries, Wildlife, & Conservation Biology with a Focus on Wildlife, who studied abroad after receiving the Gilman International Scholarship- Official Page.
This past summer, she had the opportunity to study for 4 weeks in Belize through the CELA Belize Program taking courses such as: Large Animal Veterinary Practices in the Tropics course and Wildlife Health, Ecology and Conservation.
“Receiving the Gilman made my study abroad experience possible. I had the passion and drive to study abroad, but my biggest issue was being able to finance it,” Jersusha said.
She was the only K-State student to receive this internationally competitive scholarship for the Summer 2016 term against over 4,500 other applicants.
