With the generous support from alumni and donors, Kansas State University has many scholarship opportunities for education abroad participants!

Education Abroad Internal Scholarships

The Education Abroad office awards several scholarships ranging from $100-$5000. These scholarships can be used for any program, as long as the student has an active program application at the time of scholarship review. 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.

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. Scholarships administered by Education Abroad will be reviewed on the basis of financial need, program length and type, as well as 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. If a scholarship is awarded, recipients will be notified by email of their award amount.
