There are many nationally competitive study abroad scholarships with a variety of different requirements.

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 study 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 study abroad scholarships as well.
If you received the Goss Discovery Scholarship or the Global Education Initiative Scholarship you have to complete 2 service projects for the Study Abroad Office 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 Study Abroad Fair in the semester 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 Study Abroad Fair and other Study Abroad Office events will be emailed to you as they become available.
In order to have your projects approved or track your progress/completion, please contact email@example.com.
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.
