Study Abroad Scholarships Essay Contest
Have you been dreaming about studying abroad? Whether you want the travel experience, to pursue your academic and artistic passions around the world, to learn a new language, or something else entirely, studying abroad might be the opportunity of a lifetime. You could expand your horizons—literally and figuratively—learn about yourself, and have a great time while you’re at it.
But how do you pay for it? The idea of funding a semester or year abroad might seem daunting at first. But even if you’re not sure how you might afford a study abroad program, don’t count yourself out quite yet. Study abroad scholarships could be what you’re looking for to help you cover the cost of that international experience. StudyAbroad.com doesn’t want you to give up on your dream of traveling, meeting people from around the world, seeing new places and learning new things. Rather, we want to help make that dream happen. To that end, we’ve put together an annual study abroad scholarship to go towards program costs, if you apply and are selected. This year’s scholarship prize is for $1000.
