New high financial need education abroad scholarship

By Joe Milostan

The Education Abroad Planning Scholarship was created with two primary goals in mind: to increase participation in groups of students underrepresented in education abroad at K-State, and to assist students with high financial need who are motivated to study abroad but have financial barriers associated with the out-of-pocket expenses of going abroad.

This scholarship is intended to assist recipients with education abroad predeparture-related expenses, such as airfare, visa fees, and immunizations or vaccinations.

Up to 20 scholarships of $2,000 each are available. In order to be eligible, students must be in full-time status at K-State and eligible for the Pell Grant during the fall 2017 semester.

The application deadline is Oct. 13.

Education Abroad asks the K-State university community to assist in promoting this scholarship, especially to students who receive the Pell Grant. More information can be found in the scholarship brochure on the Education Abroad website.
