Education Abroad Office scholarships 

The Education Abroad office awards several scholarships. 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 an active program application at the time of scholarship review for each term and has submitted the K-State Scholarship Network general application. Scholarships administered by Education Abroad will be reviewed on the basis of financial need, program type, the term abroad, cost of living and travel abroad, and academic merit. In all other respects, these scholarships shall be awarded without restriction to race, gender, national origin, religion, age, sexual orientation, or ability. It is important to note that being considered for a scholarship does not guarantee the applicants will receive an award.

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 Health and Human Sciences, to name a few. You must contact the Colleges or Departments directly for additional details.

Need Based Scholarship

The Education Abroad Need-Based Scholarship (EANS) was created with several goals in mind: to increase participation in groups of students underrepresented in education abroad at KSU, to assist students of high financial need who are motivated to go abroad, and to direct students to additional scholarship opportunities. Information on eligibility can be found here.


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. You can 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.

Each scholarship application is unique in process and may have differing deadlines and criteria. Please review each application for details. 

Education Abroad Office Scholarships

Education Abroad has scholarships available from generous donations made by K-State Alumni. To be considered for one of these scholarships, students need to have an active program application at the time of scholarship review for each term and have submitted the K-State Scholarship Network general application. The review of applicants will always take place after the latest K-State imposed deadline for a term, to allow for as many eligible applicants to be considered as possible. If a scholarship is awarded, recipients will be notified by email of their award amount. Some awards will require the recipient to provide information to the donor as a ‘thank you’ for this generous donation. It is important to note that being considered for a scholarship does not guarantee the applicants will receive an award.

KSU, International, and Nationally Competitive Scholarships

All scholarships are competitive and not guaranteed, so we suggest that students apply to scholarships from the K-State departments, national scholarships and even consider international scholarships to maximize the change of receiving funding.
