Interested in Studying Abroad? Let us Know if you Need Financial Help!

Education Abroad is offering the EA Access Flight Access Voucher Program.  We in BSOS want to know if we should nominate YOU for an award. Please let us know by January 20 [to give us time to meet the January 25 EA deadline] if you would like to be nominated.  Respond here.  Why should you respond?
  •  International airfare is a high-priced, out of pocket expense for students studying abroad -  easily reaching up to $2,500.
  •  Students cannot use financial aid or regular scholarships for the purchase of flights due to  federal regulations and disbursement of funds. 
  • You thought study abroad was impossible until you heard about this scholarship!
  • You have a GPA of at least 2.5-3.0 (so you’d qualify for a program you are considering)
  • You have financial need
  • You identify as one or more of the following:
    • College Success Scholar
    • Black Male Initiative
    • McNair Scholar
    • Academic Achievement Program

Note that flight vouchers may only be used for an EA approved, credit bearing study abroad program during the following terms:
  • Summer 2017
  • Fall 2017
  • Full Year 2017-2018
  • Winter 2018
