Here’s how it works. You submit an essay of 250 words or less in response to one of the following prompt questions. We’ll then select the best essay and award the winning applicants $500 scholarships, which is paid directly toward your selected program.
The prompt questions are as follows:
- What is the unique factor about your volunteer abroad program that sold you over any other program you could have chosen. If you have not finalized your program yet, what is that factor you are looking for?
Qualified applicants must be able to demonstrate volunteer, teach, or intern abroad program enrollment, an employment offer, a teaching contract, or other similar documentation. If you’re volunteering independently outside a program, you must be prepared to furnish the appropriate documentation to verify your volunteer experience.
If this sounds like something you’d like to do, get started by filling out the form and submitting your essay below. The scholarship submission closes on December 31, 2017, so be sure to complete and submit your essay by then.
We can’t wait to hear from you!
Why Should You Apply?
Going abroad can get pretty expensive. From the costs of enrollment to potential costs of living in your chosen destination, financing your volunteer or intern abroad experience might seem like a prohibitive challenge. But don’t give up quite yet! Intern and volunteer abroad scholarships might be available to help fund those once in a lifetime opportunities, should you apply and qualify.
In fact, we at StudyAbroad want to help. That’s why we’ve put together this annual $500 intern and volunteer abroad scholarship program.
