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, and 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.
